Atalanta reveal Man City keen on Peluso

Manchester City are showing interest in Atalanta defender Federico Peluso, according to the Italian club.

After Aleksandar Kolarov expressed his desire to leave the club this summer, the Citizens are forced to search for a new left back.

Recent media reports suggested boss Roberto Mancini was keen on Atalanta defender Federico Peluso and the Nerazzurri have all but confirmed the speculations.

“Gabbiadini has many suitors, but Peluso has more,” Atalanta sporting director Pierpaolo Marino said to La Gazzetta dello Sport.

“All the big clubs, including a huge one from England, are interested in Peluso. I think he will leave the Italian championship.

”Are the English club from London? No, not from London. Is it Mancini’s City? You are quick to make certain conclusions.”

The full-back started his career at Pro Vercelli and had spells with Ternana and AlbinoLeffe before joining Atalanta in 2009.

Peluso quickly managed to earn a starting berth in Bergamo and helped Orobici return to the top flight a year ago.

He then continued with impressive performances in Serie A and subsequently attracted attention from Europe’s top clubs.

Peluso featured in 33 Serie A games for Atalanta last season and scored one goal in the process.
