Mancini impressed with Newcastle striker
Roberto Mancini is thought to have added Papiss Demba Cisse to his list of targets.
The Manchester City coach still expects to lose Carlos Tevez at the end of the season, when the Argentine international is likely to quit the Etihad Stadium.
Mancini is thought to have already drawn up a list of potential replacements, and one name who is being linked with a move to the Blues is Cisse.
The 26-year-old only joined Newcastle United during the January window, but he has wasted no time whatsoever in making an impact in the Premier League.
And reports suggest City could look to take the Senegal international for £15million when the window reopens, although the Magpies are likely to reject such a bid.
