Roma defender Philippe Mexes wants a move to England this summer. The Daily Mail says Juventus and AC Milan have enquired about the France international, but reports in Turin suggest he has his heart set on testing himself in another league next season.

Mexes, once a Manchester United target, feels undervalued since former Chelsea boss Claudio Ranieri took over at Roma and hopes to attract the interest of Roberto Mancini.

City's leaky defence have conceded 37 goals in 29 Barclays Premier League games this season, significantly more than any of their serious rivals for fourth place.
