Manchester City are being linked with Parma midfielder Sebastian Giovinco.

The Sunday Mirror says Parma have slapped a €40m (£32m) price tag on Manchester City target Sebastian Giovinco.

The Italy international is part-owned by Juventus and has also been linked with the likes of Barcelona and Inter Milan.

"The market dictates prices, but I have no fear in saying that Giovinco is worth as much as Javier Pastore," Parma president Tommaso Ghirardi told Gazzetta dello Sport. "I think he is better than the Argentinian and he is as good as Alexis Sanchez."
