Fiorentina are ready to sacrifice Matija Nastasic after Manchester City offered over €10m and a player for the youngster.
The 19-year-old caught the eye for the Viola last season despite their problematic campaign in the Italian top-flight.
The Serbian made 25 League appearances, scoring two goals, which alerted a host of Europe’s top clubs to his ability.
According to stories on Wednesday, City will pay €12m cash and the services of Stefan Savic in exchange.
Fiorentina signed the stopper in 2011 from Partizan Belgrade at a cost of just under €3m. He was contracted in Tuscany until June 2014.
