Spanish club considering making move for Bosnian striker.

Manchester City striker Edin Dzeko could be set for a move to Spain after it was revealed that Atletico Madrid are showing an interest in his services according to The Daily Mail.

The powerful Bosnian arrived at the Etihad Stadium from Bundesliga side Wolfsburg for £27 million in the 2011 January transfer window.

The player initially struggled to make an impact on former City boss Roberto Mancini’s team and found himself largely restricted to substitute appearances despite the large sum of money spent on securing his signature.

Mancini found use for Dzeko more last season, and the player rewarded him with a consistent level of goal-scoring, but the Italian boss continued to prefer the likes of Carlos Tevez and Sergio Aguero when it mattered.

That prompted Dzeko to decide to seek a move elsewhere, and while it is understood he briefly considered changing his mind, it now appears he has settled on his decision after City were revealed to be close to signing Sevilla’s Alvaro Negredo.

That could pave the way for a move to Atletico Madrid, with the La Liga side keen to bring in attacking reinforcements after losing Colombian sensation Radamel Falcao to Monaco.

Dzeko is thought to be interested in the prospect of a move to a club that would see him continuing to play Champions League football.
