City to make way for RVP

Edin Dzeko is a £25million target for Bayern Munich as Manchester City look to clear the decks in order to sign Arsenal striker Robin van Persie, reports the Daily Mirror.

The 26-year-old Bosnian international heads a growing list of players deemed surplus to requirements at the Etihad Stadium next season, as manager Roberto Mancini looks to continue strengthening his Premier League title winning squad.

Carlos Tevez, Roque Santa Cruz and Emmanuel Adebayor are also facing uncertain futures with the Citizens, with last season's top goalscorer Sergio Aguero the only forward on the clubs books that the Italian tactician wants to keep next year.

The sale of four strikers will almost certainly mean City bring in attacking reinforcements this summer, with Gunners captain Van Persie the club's number one target.

Arsene Wenger is keen to keep his leading marksman at the Emirates Stadium, and have offered the Dutchman a lucrative three-year deal to extend his stay in north London.

But, after Arsenal's trophyless spell went into a seventh consecutive season, the 28-year-old may feel that enough is enough and it's time to move on to pastures new.

Juventus will provide Van Persie with an alternative option, should he decide to leave England, with reports in Italy suggesting that Pavel Nedved - a fans' favourite in Turin, and director for the Serie A outfit, met with the player at Holland's pre-tournament training camp ahead of Euro 2012.
