Man City look to Milan youngster

Roberto Mancini's Manchester City have targeted Milan youth team striker Luca Scapuzzi, it's reported.

The 20-year-old grew up in the Rossoneri youth academy and recently terminated his contract with Serie B outfit Portogruaro after two seasons there.

He spent almost a year on the treatment table with a serious knee ligament injury, but has now recovered.

According to the Gazzetta dello Sport, Scapuzzi is available for around £1m and could be snapped up for the Man City reserve team.

However, other sources suggest he could already be a free agent, as Milan opted not to renew his contract in 2009.
