With Feyenoord needing a new striker to replace the departed Graziano Pelle, they have turned their attentions to Guidetti, and according to Voetbal International the club has met the player’s representative’s in Portugal to thrash out a deal.

The only stumbling block for a potential deal is the transfer fee, with Manchester City reportedly asking for €5 million, despite the 22-year-old having no future at the club.

Feyenoord are desperate to sign a new striker quickly, and as well as Guidetti, the club are interested in Wolfsburg’s Bas Dost, and Napoli’s Duvan Zapata.
