Manchester City could be willing to part with either Aleksandar Kolarov or Edin Dzeko in an attempt to lure Paul Pogba back to the Premier League, according to reports in Italy.
Pogba has excelled in the Serie A with Juventus, having been deemed surplus to requirements by Manchester United.
Information in Italy, relayed by the Manchester Evening News, suggest that the Blues are set to offer a £30million cash plus player deal. Dzeko's contract expires next summer and, despite his impressive haul of 22 goals in all competitions, might be seen as expendable due to City's plethora of striking options – Alvaro Negredo, Sergio Aguero and Stevan Jovetic.
Kolarov, on the other hand, has established himself as City's first-choice left-back, ahead of Gael Clichy, so his departure would be more surprising.
Pogba has been instrumental In Juventus' title charge this season, scoring eight goals and providing seven assists in 33 appearances. Considering the French international's age and growing stature within the game, it will require an enormous bid to prise him away from Juventus.
