Udinese have changed their stance on their Ghanaian striker Asamoah Gyan and the word is that they are now prepared to sell him to any team willing to offer them an amount in excess of 8m Euro.

It was only last month that the Serie A side said that they will not let the 22-year-old leave in January for any price, and it is uncertain what has prompted the sudden U-turn.

The news will be of specific interested to Manchester City, Lazio and Lokomotiv Moscow, who have all expressed an interest in the Ghanaian international.

City would appear to have a leg up on their rivals in that case, as Asamoah recently confessed his desire to star in the Premiership someday.

"It's my dream to play in a country like England," he was quoted as saying by BBC Sport.

"When I was young, I prayed to play in Italy.

"I've been in Italy for four years, so now I'm looking to England."

Asamoah became the first Ghanaian player to score a goal in the World Cup finals last year, and he will be looking to do his country proud once more during the African Nations Cup in Ghana next January.
