Manchester City are reportedly interested in signing Livorno goalkeeper Marco Amelia.
City have been the first side to show an interest in Amelia and are understood to have already put in a bid, plus the loan of Bernado Corradi as part of the deal, as coach Sven Goran Eriksson does all he can to bring the player to Eastlands.
Newcastle and Portsmouth have also been thrown into the frame for the keeper's services with reports stating that they have officially approached the Tuscan side for information.
Livorno president Aldo Spinelli will only sell the player if the club receives a big offer, otherwise he is expected to keep hold of him until January when the transfer window opens and the side will know how their season is going.
Siena eye Corradi
Meanwhile, Corradi has also emerged as a possible target for Siena.
Siena have reportedly enquired about the Italian striker and will be willing to pay his salary as they need to strengthen their attack.
Reports suggest negotiations are expected to start over the next few days.
