ImageThe Italian forward Stefano Mancinelli is reported to be really close to the Turkish Champions Efes Pilsen. He is reported to prefer playing for Efes rather than Italian teams he has offers from.

Mancinelli played for Fortitudo Bologna last season, but the club's relegation seems to not fit his needs as a professonal player so he chose Efes who is obviously having big plans for next year since the Turkish club has already signed Igor Rakocevic.
