The 29 year old has struggled to retain a foothold in the Etihad Stadium starting eleven throughout his time at the Premier League side and the January arrival of Wilfried Bony is perhaps the last straw for the Bosnian.

Dzeko is into his fifth season at Man City and has made just 11 Premier League starts this term and talkSPORT believe Juventus will look to bring in the powerful forward to replace Fernando Llorente, who could be on his way to Tottenham.

Former Man City boss Roberto Mancini forked out £27m to bring in Dzeko from Wolfsburg in January 2011 and his tally of 72 goals in 185 appearances is all the more impressive when you consider 71 of those appearances came from the bench.

Manuel Pellegrini has the likes of Sergio Aguero, Stevan Jovetic and the aforementioned Bony to call upon if he does elect to sell Dzeko in the summer.
