Manchester City are interested in Bolton Wanderers attacker El Hadji Diouf.

The Daily Mail says City manager Sven Goran Eriksson has identified Diouf as a summer transfer target after the former Liverpool star made it clear that he will leave the Reebok Stadium this summer.

Diouf, 27, is still under contract at Bolton but has made it clear that he wants a new challenge, whether his current club wins its fight against relegation from the Barclays Premier League or not.
