Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini has confirmed the club are set to sign Aleksandar Kolarov from Lazio.
The Serbian international has long been linked with a move to City and the Premier League side have now reportedly agreed a fee of around £19million with Lazio for the defender.
“He [Aleksandar Kolarov] has the ability to play in numerous positions and is very good in midfield,” Mancini told the club’s website.
“This is an additional benefit to the team. He has a fantastic international career ahead of him. I first saw Kolarov in his Lazio debut back in 2007. I was impressed by the speed and strength of someone so young.
“I have watched him a lot since then and so have the Manchester City scouts. His attacking capability is very good. He is fast and can shoot with power and accuracy.
“He was composed on the ball, had an excellent delivery with his left foot and was technically very able.”
