Wolfsburg could be set to launch an audacious swoop for their former striker Edin Dzeko, according to reports.
According to The Mirror,German Newspaper Die Welt believe the Bundesliga outfit will make a move for Dzeko following the arrival of Kevin De Bruyne from Chelsea.
Dzeko has been third choice at Manchester City this season, with Alvaro Negredo and Sergio Aguero being Manuel Pellegrini's preferred pairing in attack.
Despite the form of Negredo and Aguero, Dzeko has managed to find the net 16 times already this season for Manchester City, the most recent of those coming in City's 4-2 win against Cardiff on Saturday.
The Bosnian netted the opening goal of the game, and in doing so took City's tally to 100 goals for the season, a return which suggest's all is well for Pellegrini and his strikers.
With Bosnia having qualified for their first ever World Cup this summer, Dzeko is likely to want to play regular first team football between now and the end of the season, though Pellegrini will be reluctant to lose his man as City continue to challenge for an unprecedented quadruple.
During his time at the Etihad Stadium, Dzeko has developed a reputation as somewhat of a super-sub, regularly coming off the bench to net important goals for his team.
Injury to summer signing Stevan Jovetic also decreases the likelihood of a January move for Dzeko, who has featured heavily in recent weeks as Aguero, like Jovetic, was forced out of contention with injury.
