Hotshot wants Emirates move!
Wolfsburg striker Edin Dzeko is not interested in Manchester City but would consider a move to Arsenal, according to his agent.
The 23-year-old Bosnia and Herzegovina international, who has been named the Bundesliga’s footballer of the year by German journalists, is currently attracting attention from a wide range of clubs across Europe.
And, after confirming that City and Arsenal are interested, agent Irfan Redzepagic has revealed that Dzeko would be open to a move to Emirates Stadium.
“It is not possible for Dzeko, who is a leading player in Germany and has the chance to play in the Champions League, to go to a mid-table club like Manchester City,” he told Onet.
“Arsenal would be a different matter.
“The Londoners’ offer is one we treat very seriously.”

It’s refreshing to hear a professional footballer putting ambition ahead of financial prosperity. The net is closing on the Wolfsburg man and if Arsene can snare him he would be adding a new dimension to his attacking force.
Unfortunately his Bundesliga club are keen to milk the Bosnian for all he’s worth, which is understandable but also a little misguided. Edin Dzeko may well be the next big thing but he is not worth the valuation placed on him of £26m. Clearly the German champions realise that Man City are in the chase and therefore are keen to make this a one team bidding war, but clearly Edin isn’t too keen on that, hence we are at something of a stalemate.
Surely though the club will not stand in the player’s way and risk being stuck with an unhappy player on their books.
