John Guidetti: Agent claims to have had talks with Lazio over a possible loan deal
Manchester City striker John Guidetti dreams of a move to Italy to play for Lazio, according to his agent.
Guidetti made a huge impact on loan at Feyenoord last season, scoring 20 goals in 23 Eredivisie games for the club.
The 20-year-old Sweden international has already expressed an unwillingness to return to City if it is to play reserve team football so is eyeing another loan move elsewhere.
Lazio are near the top of the list of possible destinations for the forward, according to Guidetti's Italian agent Roberto De Fanti.
De Fanti told cittaceleste.it: "I cannot hide, I have spoken with Lazio about Guidetti because several Italian and European clubs like him.
"He is the best under-21 striker in Europe, he played well in a league where champions like (Ruud) Van Nistelrooy and (Marco) Van Basten found their limelight.
"If Lazio does not complete the signing of (Trabzonspor striker, Burak) Yilmaz, I think it could open a door for Guidetti.
"He wants to continue his growth process, in a club where he could play with continuity, even behind someone like (Miroslav) Klose with whom he could only improve.
"There would be every reason to talk about this negotiation. Guidetti dreams of Italy."
