Shakhtar Donetsk striker Cristiano Lucarelli is a target for Premiership clubs.

Middlesbrough and Manchester City have been linked with the Italy international and Corriere dello Sport says he is leaning towards a move to the Premiership over a return to Italy next month.

Lucarelli is seeking a loan deal so to put himself in the shop window for Italy coach Roberto Donadoni ahead of the European Championships.
