Roberto Mancini is thought to be monitoring the Cagliari Calcio centre-back, who has also been a long-term target for English club Tottenham.

According to Football Direct News, which cites Turkish Football as its source, Mancini is keen to make a move for the former AC Milan defender as he looks to strengthen his back-line for next season.

Astori joined Cagliari from Milan in 2008 having found it difficult to hold down a position in the club's starting XI.
