Borussia Dortmund to Launch £18m Bid for Man City Striker in January Transfer Window

Bundesliga side want Etihad Stadium forward.

Check in to Sunderland vs Manchester City

Borussia Dortmund will launch an £18m bid for Man City striker Edin Dzeko according to Sports Direct News.

The 27 year old has 18 months to run on his current contract and with no sign of a new deal being offered Jurgen Klopp may well be successful with his advances to sign the Bosnian striker with Borussia Dortmund looking for a long term replacement for feared Bundesliga goal machine Robert Lewandowski.

The Pole will be out of contract in the summer and is likely to leave Westfalenstadion and Dzeko could be the ideal man to fill his spot.

Dzeko has struggled to retain a foothold in the Etihad Stadium starting line-up ever since he completed his £27m move to the club back in January 2011, this despite the fact that the powerful forward has been scoring regularly for the club.

The former Wolfsburg man may have hoped his fortunes would change under new boss Manuel Pellegrini but that has not proven the case. Dzeko has been out of the starting eleven for the past four Premier League matches with the Chilean boss opting to use Sergio Aguero and Spanish signing Alvaro Negredo.

Dzeko has scored a total of 46 goals in 120 appearances of which a whopping 50 were from the bench.
