Manchester : Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini wants to bring Arsenal mid-fielder Samir Nasri and Atletico Madrid striker Sergio Aguero to the club.

Mancini is likely to seal Aguero-deal for 35 million pounds. The Argentine will be a replacement for his compatriot Carlos Tevez, who is likely to move to Brazilian club Corinthians.

In an interview with Sky Sports News, Mancini said: “Aguero is a player that can play for Manchester City because he is young and he is a good player like Carlos. “He can score a lot of goals and can play with Mario (Balotelli), with Edin (Dzeko)… it could be that he joins.”

Aguero, 23, has been the subject of widespread speculation that he will move to England, with Chelsea also reportedly showing an interest, while Tevez wants to leave City for South America saying he needs to be closer to his children.

Aguero has also been linked with a move to Atletico’s city rivals Real Madrid, as well as Juventus.

Mancini was also candid about signing Nasri from Arsenal. Nasri has one year left on his contract with the London side, although Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has said he wants to keep him even if he does not renew his deal, and would allow him to leave for nothing next year. Mancini told Sky: “Samir is under contract with Arsenal.Also for Samir it depends on many things.” Asked if City had made a bid for the 24-year-old Frenchman, Mancini said: “I don’t know… but for Nasri it is difficult.

“I hope that we can buy because we need other players, and I hope that this player can arrive before the end of the month.”

Mancini also said he respected Tevez’s decision to want to leave City for family and personal reasons.

Corinthians of Brazil have bid about 40 million pounds ($64.47 million) for Tevez, according to Brazilian media. (Agencies)
