€18m Arsenal striker target wants move

Next Story

Arsenal target Edin Dzeko has reportedly written to Manchester City asking for a move to Eastlands.

The Bosnian international has been on the radar of a string of European clubs in recent years, with Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger thought to be close to securing a deal for the player last January.

Daily Mirror reports claimed that Dzeko was top of the Gunners wish list, and were considering an improved offer in the region of €18 million as they looked to force the hand of Wolfsburg.

Now, the Daily Mail claims that the striker has written to the City of Manchester stadium outfit, with Dzeko expressing his interest in joining Roberto Mancini's title-chasing outfit.

The current Carlos Tevez saga could leave big-spending City in the market for another striker, and Dzeko's desire to move to the Premier League makes him a prime target.

Arsenal boss Wenger is also thought to be in the market for a striker following the announcement of bumper profits at the Emirates a few months back.

It is thought that the Gunners board will back transfer activity in north London should the Frenchman look to buy, although Arsenal could struggle to match the spending power of the Citizens.

Whether Dzeko still appeals to Wenger is another question still to be answered, although the Bundesliga striker was reportedly top of Wenger's transfer wish list less than a year ago, and is still likely to be on the Arsenal radar.
