The Bosnian striker has struggled to establish himself in Roberto Mancini's first-team plans at City since arriving in 2011, with many of his appearances coming off the bench.

He is, however, the reigning Premier League champions' top goalscorer this season with 13 in all competitions.

After spending a successful four years with Wolfsburg between 2007-11 ahead of his City move, Dzeko has been tipped for a return to Germany at the end of the season.

Dortmund were thought to be keen amid speculation they could lose star striker Robert Lewandowski to the likes of Manchester United or Bayern Munich.

But Dortmund boss Klopp insists that is not the case, telling SID: "This is total nonsense and not funny anymore."

Dzeko joined City for a reported £27million two years ago after scoring 85 goals during his time in the Bundesliga and Klopp admits the 26-year-old, who is contracted at City until 2014, is out of Dortmund's price range.

He added: "Dzeko is a good player but he is sadly out of our possibilities."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
