Dzeko’s future at the Etihad Stadium has been in doubt ever since the arrivals of Wilfried Bony and Raheem Sterling from Swansea City and Liverpool respectively in the last two transfer windows as those additions has further pushed him down the pecking order under manager Manuel Pellegrini.
The 29-year-old made just 11 starts in the Premier League last season and the last of his four goals during the campaign came in the 2-1 defeat at the hands of Liverpool at Anfield back in March.

Should Dzeko complete a transfer to Roma, he is likely to be fondly remembered for scoring the crucial equaliser against Queens Park Rangers during City’s 2011-12 title winning campaign as the Blues may still be awaiting their first league title in 44 years had the Bosnian not found the back of the net to set up a dramatic finale.
