Premier League clubs hunt Sampdoria’s youngster
Having admitted defeat in his pursuit of AS Roma star Danielle De Rossi, Manchester City manager has switched his attentions to another Serie A star; Sampdoria’s Pedro Obiang.
The 20 year-old has also been watched by Tottenham and Chelsea and could be set for a switch to the Premier League this January.
However, having joined Italian club Sampdoria from Spanish side Atletico Madrid, speculation that he could return to La Liga is also rife.
According to reports in the Daily Mail, Jose Miguel Gonzalez said in November:
“We know that several Italian, English and Spanish clubs are following him, but Pedro is a mature guy and is thinking only about Sampdoria.”
It is understood that title holders Man City are looking to sign a midfielder in January and Pedro Obiang is just one of the players on Mancini’ wishlist.
