Man who can’t stop scoring earmarked to replace trouble making striker.
Arsenal are favourites to beat Manchester City to the signature of Wolfsburg striker Edin Dzeko as an £8million replacement for Emmanuel Adebayor.
Bosnian striker Dzeko, 23, hit 26 goals in 32 games in helping fire Wolfsburg to the Bundesliga title and Arsenal have registered their interest with his club.
Gunners coach Boro Primorac has been out to watch the 6ft 3in target man and has given glowing reports to Arsene Wenger.

It does appear that Emmanuel Adebayor’s Arsenal career is more or less at an end and any attempt by Arsene Wenger to encourage fans to lay off the Togolese star have fell on deaf ears, and the main reason for this is that the striker has got exactly what he deserves after last summers half arsed attempts to engineer a transfer to AC Milan were followed by a distinctly average season.
This source suggests that Arsene Wenger is looking to a hugely impressive Bosnian to replace Adebayor. 23 year old Edin Dzeko wasn’t exactly a household name before the latest season kicked off but his strike partnership with Brazilian Grafite helped Wolfsburg to their first ever Bundesliga title and did so in style.
Now Edin looks set to leave the German champions after the club’s boss left to join Schalke and Wenger and others are looking to snap up the in form striker as soon as possible.
Dzeko to Arsenal: This could very well happen in the coming weeks.
