Edin Dzeko: Linked with return to Germany

The 27-year-old joined City for £27million in 2011, but he has always struggled to hold down a regular starting spot.

Of his 70 Premier League games for City, he has started just 36 of those - but still has managed 28 Premier League goals.

City boss Roberto Mancini is a fan of the Bosnian, but has conceded that because of his lack of starts he could very well be sold this summer and Dortmund are favourites for his signature as they are due to sell their leading marksman Robert Lewandowski.

General manager Michael Zorc has revealed that the club are interested, but denied a deal was already done - admitting there could be an issue with the 'economic aspect' of any deal.

"There should be little doubt about Edin Dzeko being a top-class striker," Zorc told Sport-Bild weekly.

"He is a great forward and a player one should be keen on. However there is also still somewhat of an economic aspect.

"It would be down to pure maths because Edin Dzeko is under contract at Manchester City beyond the end of the season."

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
