Bosnian hitman wanted at Eastlands
Edin Dzeko's representatives are in talks over the player possibly moving to Manchester City, Sky Sports News
The Wolfsburg striker, who has been rumoured to be a target of several of Europe's biggest clubs, has been in prolific form for his club since joining from Czech side Teplice in 2007.
The 24-year-old was set to be new manager and former England boss Steve McClaren's prized possession if he could get hold of the classy target man, but it seems that City's huge amounts of financial resources could prise Dzeko away.
The Bosnian international's record of 54 goals in 94 games for his club appears to be enough to have persuaded City boss Roberto Mancini to part with the required funds to land the player, despite a wealth of striking options available to him.
If Dzeko is to make the move to Eastlands, it could spell the end of the line for some of his potential competition , with Roque Santa Cruz, Emmanuel Adebayor, Craig Bellamy and Robinho all rumoured to be heading towards the exit door.
