Manchester City could make a decisive move for Alessio Cerci of Fiorentina within the next 72 hours.
City boss Roberto Mancini is a fan of the attacking midfielder and a move to the Premiership is expected.
Although reports linking the two parties have cooled over recent weeks, it is being claimed that the move is still very much on.
A transfer could be finalised by the end of this week with City expected to offer around €7m for the former Under-21 international.
