Bosnian is yet again warming the subs’ bench in the north west.
Bundesliga giants Borussia Dortmund are interested in signing out-of-favour Manchester City front man Edin Dzeko when the winter transfer window opens again for business in the new year, however, the Germans are said to be unwilling to pay more than £15 million for the player though, according to reports in the Daily Mail.
Dortmund head coach Jurgen Klopp has made the addition of a new experienced striker an absolute priority for the turn of the year, with last season’s Uefa Champions League runners-up already resigned to losing the services of prolific Poland international Robert Lewandowski to arch-rivals Bayern Munich come January.
However, it is also believed that Klopp and Dortmund will not pay over the odds for the Bosnian, which may ultimately prove to be a stumbling block in their attempts to lure the 27-year-old to the Ruhr Valley next year, especially as the north-west outfit are thought to value Dzeko at around the £25m mark.
Dzeko has been at Eastlands now since January 2011 when former City manager Roberto Mancini bought the forward from Bundesliga side Wolfsburg on a four-and-a-half-year deal for a fee of £27m, and in the intervening period the Bosnia international has hit 46 goals in 118 matches in all competitions for the Blues.
