Is this Bundesliga ace set for a big money move to the Premier League?
Interest is building in Wolfsburg striker Edin Dzeko with numerous Premier League clubs reported to be monitoring his progress though Liverpool, Arsenal and Manchester United have emerged as front-runners. The 23-year-old has enjoyed a superb season after scoring 19 goals in 28 league appearances (25 starts) as his club currently tops the Bundesliga, three points above Bayern with 4 games to go. His impressive displays have brought interest from the likes of Tottenham, Everton, Blackburn, Portsmouth and Sunderland as well as Champions League regulars Chelsea.
The Bosnian striker is currently the joint 2nd top scorer in Germany, four goals behind leading marksman and team-mate Grafite. However, Grafite’s tally includes 8 penalties whilst Dzeko’s 19-goal tally doesn’t include any from the spot. The Bosnian is also 7 years younger than his strike partner plus more creative and is tipped to move to one of the European giants this summer. He has a reputation as the ‘Bosnian Van Basten’ due to his similar goal-scoring prowess, height and ability to score all sorts of goals. (footballpools.com)
Interest in Dzeko has reached fever pitch and it does appear that the Bosnian may well garner a move to the Premier League even if he does lead his Wolfsburg team to their first ever Bundesliga crown Edin is likely to want to secure himself a lucrative move to either England or Spain.
Whilst i wouldn’t get so carried away as to suggest, as this source does, that he is the next Van Basten he is in rich vein of form and offers a great deal more than just goals galore. The tall striker could well fill the void alongside Torres at Liverpool and Rafa has made it clear he needs to bring in someone to help El Nino up front and Dzeko would be a great signing.
Do fans of any of the teams chasing Edin feel he could do well in the English top tier?
