John Guidetti: Attracting plenty of interest this summer
Serie A clubs Siena and Torino have both cooled speculation linking them with sought-after Manchester City starlet John Guidetti.
Guidetti is hot property in the transfer market this summer after impressing on loan at Eredivisie giants Feyenoord last season.
The 20-year-old striker, who scored 20 goals in 23 appearances during his campaign with the Rotterdammers, has 15 clubs chasing him, according to previous claims by his agent.
Italian sides Siena and Torino are among his reported suitors, with another loan deal appearing a likely option for the frontman, but they hold little hope of signing the Sweden international.
Siena sports director Stefan Antoneli told Sky Sport Italia: "Guidetti is an important player, but there are many clubs interested in him.
"It's obvious that we'll do something more in the market."
Torino's coach, Giampiero Ventura, is even less hopeful of snaring the talented youngster.
He said: "I hope we can get some reinforcements. Guidetti? I don't think he'll come here."
