Edin Dzeko admits to being the subject of interest this summer, but says he is discussing a new contract at Manchester City.
The Bosnian striker has entered the final 12 months of his current deal at the Etihad Stadium.
City are eager to talk terms, though, after seeing Dzeko play a pivotal role in their 2013/14 Premier League title success.
The 28-year-old netted 26 times in all competitions last season, the first time in his three-and-a-half years in England that he has broken through the 20-goal barrier.
Dzeko has not always been a regular starter at City, but he is enjoying his time with the club and is confident an extension will be agreed in the near future.
He told kicker-Sportmagazin: “I am very happy in England. I am enjoying it.
“I am in talks about a new deal. I am expecting to sign on.
“I have been the subject of some enquiries, but I knew I wanted to stay on at Manchester City.”
Dzeko has also been discussing a possible return to former employers Wolfsburg at some stage in his career.
He admits such a move is unlikely, but is ruling nothing out.
He added: “Anything could happen.
“I had a great time at Wolfsburg and it is a club that I owe a lot. But a return to Wolfsburg is not realistic at the moment.”
