Nastasic, 19, has been a long-term target of City manager Roberto Mancini, and the clubs are thought to have agreed a fee of around £12 million for his transfer.

If the deal goes through, it has been suggested that City's Stefan Savic could move in the opposite direction.

Montenegro centre-back Savic has failed to establish himself in the first team picture at the Etihad, and had been linked with a loan move to Championship Wolves.
