Mantovani wanted by trio

Three Italian top-flight clubs are in the queue to sign Chievo Verona defender Andrea Mantovani.

The 26-year-old will be sold this summer if a bid of at least €5m is received for the former Torino player.

Lazio and Udinese have been tracking him all season, but Fiorentina are especially keen on the versatile stopper.

Mantovani also has admirers in Spain, with Atletico Madrid and Sevilla showing an interest in the player.

Born in Turin, Mantovani joined Chievo in 2005 after a season on loan at Triestina.
