Manchester City striker Edin Dzeko could be on his way out of the Etihad Stadium after his agent revealed he would prefer a move to Juventus or Atletico Madrid if he were to leave the Premier League club, reports the Express.
The 28-year-old is set to fall down the pecking order at the champions after the arrival of Wilfried Bony from Swansea City this month, who is likely to become the second striker behind Sergio Aguero at the club.
Dzeko arrived at City back in 2011 from German side Wolfsburg, and since then, he's gone on to make over 100 appearances for the Manchester club, scoring 48 league goals in the process.
The Bosnian international has been strongly linked with a move away from City with the lack of game-time a real issue for the striker, and his agent has now revealed that if he were to leave the club, it would only be to a 'big-club'.
He said: "Dzeko is 28 years old and wants to play for the most prestigious teams in Europe. If he were to leave Manchester City he'd prefer a big club like Juventus or Atletico Madrid."

Out of Favour
Dzeko has only started six Premier League games so far this season, despite the injury sustained to Aguero, and Manuel Pellegrini is now ready to sell up at the end of the season.
Despite Dzeko being the man linked with a move away, it's Stevan Jovetic who has been dealt a real snub after Pellegrini revealed it was him who would be excluded from their Champions League squad in order to make way for Bony.
The striker's agent the continued to discuss his client's future and admitted that they have had an offer from Galatasaray, but that was when Roberto Mancini was in charge.
Irfan Radzipegic revealed: "We haven't received any offer from Fenerbahce.
"Last year Roberto Mancini's Galatasaray asked for him [Dzeko] on loan, but nothing came of it."
