Manchester City hope to land Inter Milan defender Andrea Ranocchia.

The Sun says City will be offered defender Ranocchia as part of Inter Milan's bid to land Aleksandar Kolarov.

City boss Roberto Mancini has a new centre-back on his wanted list this summer with doubts over Kolo Toure and Stefan Savic in the long-term.

And he is a long-standing fan of Italy international Ranocchia, 24, who cost the Serie A club around £16million since he arrived from Genoa two years ago.

Inter are keen to beat off Juventus to land Kolarov who has indicated he wants to play more regular first team football.
