Manchester City are interested in signing Fiorentina striker Adrian Mutu, according to the player’s agent.
Mutu has been linked with a move away from Florence in the winter transfer market, with a number of leading clubs reported to be interested in securing his services.
”I will be in Italy for the final week of the transfer market,” the player’s agent, Giovanni Becali, said. ”There are several clubs interested in Mutu, clubs that would definitely allow him to increase his wages.
”There are clubs keen on the player from Russia, Turkey but especially England. (Roberto) Mancini strongly wants him at Manchester City and said that he would be an ideal player for his team. It remains to be seen if Fiorentina will be willing to talk about a possible Mutu transfer.”
Mutu is under contract with the Viola until June 2012 and has scored four goals in 10 league appearances this season.
