PSG to Launch January Move to Sign Man City Forward Edin Dzeko

Ligue 1 big spenders line up move for Etihad Stadium.

PSG boss Carlo Ancelotti is said to be pursuing Man City striker Edin Dzeko as he looks to add to his Parc des Princes attacking options and hopes that a move to the big spending Ligue 1 side will appeal to the Bosnian international.

Despite scoring on a regular basis the 26 year old is still very much a bit part player at the Etihad Stadium and when all his striking options are fully fit Roberto Mancini sees the former Wolfsburg man as his fourth choice option, with Sergio Aguero, Mario Balotelli and Carlos Tevez all ahead of the big forward in the Man City pecking order.

Ancelotti knows that he needs to secure a domestic title this season at the very least, or fact the sack from the club’s Qatari owners, who have pumped in over £100m to cover the cost of summer acquisitions.

However Ancelotti does not have appear to have an effective striking support for Zlatan Ibrahimovic and may feel the need to splash out on reinforcements in January and has earmarked a move for Dzeko.

Though he cost Mancini £27m the Italian only handed the Dzeko 16 Premier League starts last season and may well feel the need to further balance the books by considering offers for his services.

Over the summer Man City sold first team squad players Adam Johnson, Emmanuel Adebayor, Nigel de Jong and Stefan Savic and Roberto Mancini may well feel the pressure to further trim an expansive squad, not least with UEFA’s FFP (Financial Fair Play) Guidelines beginning to bite.

Thus far this season PSG have started their push for a first Ligue 1 title in 19 years with one win from their opening four fixtures and Ancelotti’s side have managed just four goals, all of which coming from new signing Ibrahimovic, hence the need for the former Chelsea and AC Milan boss to consider supplementing his attacking options.
