City interested in Napoli duo

Manchester City are interested in Napoli's Marek Hamsik and Ezequiel Lavezzi, Roberto Mancini's assistant has revealed.

Earlier this week Mancio stated that he wanted to sign Hamsik while at Inter and it seems that he's still a big fan.

"Hamsik has developed into a really important player," Fausto Salsano, a former teammate of Mancini at Sampdoria, told Radio CRC.

"He's now acquired the right kind of experience."

Salsano also spoke well of Lavezzi, the Argentine forward who was associated with a summer switch to Manchester.

"Lavezzi is a devastating player," Salsano continued. "He's the kind of guy who does real harm n one on one situations.

"They are two players who we like because our objective at City is to do great things and win."

At present, Hamsik and Lavezzi form a crucial trident with Uruguayan international centre-forward Edinson Cavani at the Stadio San Paolo.
