Sunderland boss Paolo di Canio is chasing Manchester City striker John Guidetti.

The Daily Star Sunday says Di Canio is ­revamping his squad and has stepped up attempts to sign City striker Guidetti, 21.

The Swede didn't see action last season due to a debilitating leg virus, but is again fully fit and enjoys a big reputation thanks to his stunning season on-loan at Feyenoord last year.
