Mantovani has 'numerous' admirers

Chievo stopper Andrea Mantovani is a wanted man. "Clubs in Italy and abroad would like him," said his agent.

Mantovani is one the Verona club's most prized assets and he was reportedly close to leaving last summer.

A year later and the defender is still admired with the likes of Fiorentina and Napoli now associated with his name.

"I can confirm that there are numerous sides who are interested," Graziano Battistini noted when questioned by TMW.

"Those sides are in Italy and abroad, especially in Spain where their market is very active at this moment in time.

"However, the ball is in Chievo's court and they will decide the player's future."

Mantovani, 26, joined the Flying Donkeys in the summer of 2005 from hometown club Torino.
