Reports in England and Italy suggest that Manchester City are preparing a new assault for Roma midfielder Daniele De Rossi.
The Italy midfielder was strongly linked with a transfer to the Premier League side during last season, when talks over a contract renewal in the capital stalled.
Despite him having since signed that improved deal with the Giallorossi, reports suggest that Roberto Mancini has asked City officials to test Roma’s reserve for holding on to the 29-year-old.
The Gazzetta dello Sport, however, believe that the capital club are unwilling to listen to offers at any level for the midfielder.
