Peruzzi was recently linked with Manchester City and Inter Milan, but the Argentina international now appears to be closing on a switch to the Stadium of Light.

The right-back, who can also play on the wing, has seemingly emerged as the latest target for Paolo Di Canio as the Sunderland boss overhauls his squad.

Calello has claimed an agreement has been reached with Sunderland and it is now down to Peruzzi to settle on personal terms with the Premier League club.

"We talked about the payment conditions and the values, we reached an agreement quickly," Calello told Rock & Pop.

"Now Gino Peruzzi's representatives and the English club need to reach an agreement.

"When this kind of proposal comes, it's hard to say no. If we turn them down, we might never receive this kind of proposal again."

A potential deal for the 21-year-old follows on from Sunderland agreeing a fee with AZ Alkmaar to sign American striker Jozy Altidore.

And Di Canio has already added Vito Mannone, Modibo Diakite, Valentin Roberge, Cabral, David Moberg Karlsson and Duncan Watmore to a squad which survived a brush with relegation last season.

still can't see the Phil Jones thing that some people go on about. Whenever I watch him play it's a repeat of headless chicken meets a gurning Bambi on ice for 90 minutes.

F365's Top Ten Defenders Of The Season

robably the first list I've come across in a long time where I agree with a large majority of what was written. Can't agree with everything though, Zaba has had an awful season by his standards, I'd put Monreal (a player who I've never rated) up there, gotta give credit where it's due, he's really stepped up his game.
