The agent of Manchester City starlet John Guidetti claims 15 clubs have expressed an interest in taking the highly-rated striker this summer.

John Guidetti: Caught the eye last season

With the route to the first team seemingly blocked at the Etihad Stadium, Guidetti has been forced to look elsewhere for games in recent seasons.

A loan spell at Dutch outfit Feyenoord last term saw his reputation rocket, as he netted 20 goals in 23 appearances.

Those exploits have seen the 20-year-old forward become hot property, with sides from across Europe understood to be chasing his signature.

Italian teams - including Lazio, Fiorentina and Siena - appeared to be leading the chase at one stage, but Premier League side Sunderland are also believed to be keen.

It is expected that City will opt to send the Sweden international out on another season-long loan, and Guidetti will have plenty of proposals to consider should that prove to be the case.

"There are 15 clubs who have enquired about the options for John," Gudietti's representative Per Jonsson told Sportbladet.

"Right now there are negotiations with City. It's up to them, but I believe everything will work out in the end."
