Published Add your comment

Manchester United assistant Mike Phelan rates Wolfsburg striker Edin Dzeko as "ideal for the English league" and has hinted the Red Devils could consider a move for the player.

Dzeko, 23, has attracted interest from teams in Spain, Italy and England, with United, Manchester City, Chelsea and Arsenal all linked with him in recent weeks.

"I'm sure there are a number of teams looking at him. Are we one on them? We are looking at talent all of the time and we are in there with the rest of them," he said. "In some ways he is an ideal player for the English league."

The Bosnia forward scored against Sir Alex Ferguson's side when the sides met in the Champions League earlier this season and Phelan has admitted the club have been looking at him since.

He added: "He showed his threat in the game at Old Trafford and he appeals because he is a tall and skilful boy.

"He has stature, his feet are good and he is producing some good performances. I am sure everybody has looked at him."
