Cagliari eye Flamengo midfielder Luiz Antonio
Rio De Janeiro: Cagliari have added unsettled Brazilian midfielder Luiz Antonio to their transfer wish list as they turn to the Brazilian market for midseason reinforcement.
News of interest in the Brazil under-20 midfielder comes days after the Italian Serie A club made a formal bid for Antonio`s Flamengo teammate Adryan, Xinhua reported.
According to Brazilian daily O Globo, Cagliari are seeking a replacement for Belgium international Radja Nainggolan, who is expected to leave the club.
The move would be aided by an escalating row between Luiz Antonio and Flamengo over the club`s alleged missed salary payments.
The 22-year-old has sought legal action to rescind his contract with the Rio de Janeiro club.
