Manchester City striker Edin Dzeko has agreed personal terms with Serie A side AS Roma, according to Sky Sports News.
The Bosnian international has grown fed up with life in Manchester at the Etihad Stadium and wants to leave the club this summer in order to play regular first-team football once again.
Back-Up at City
Dzeko has been a back-up to Sergio Aguero ever since arriving from Wolfsburg back in 2011, and now that Wilfried Bony has arrived at the club, he could be pushed down to third-choice striker.

City splashed out nearly £30million on the striker four years ago, but with Aguero still firing and Bony expected to feature regularly next season, there is no place in the starting XI for Dzeko next season.
The 29-year-old voiced his frustrations earlier in the summer and informed Manuel Pellegrini that he was contemplating a move away from the club, and it now looks like it's set to be finalised.
Roma Move Agreed
According to reports, Dzeko has already agreed personal terms with Roma after talking to the Italian club. The forward wanted a move there in January in order to link up with his national team-mate Miralem Pjanic, but the transfer didn't materialise and he had to remain in England.
However, with no change in the past few months, the striker is now ready to leave the Premier League and join the Serie A club.
Dzeko could be the second striker to make the move from City to Italy with Stevan Jovetic closing in on a season-long loan move to Inter Milan.
Clubs In Talks
The latest news with Dzeko and Roma is that personal terms have been agreed, but the two clubs are yet to agree on a transfer fee, with City wanting as much as possible after investing all they have done on him.
After starting just 11 games last season however, Roma feel they can sign the Bosnian international on the cheap.
If the deal is finalised, it would be Roma's second signing from the Premier League, following their announcement of Wojciech Szczesny on a season-long loan from Arsenal.
Dzeko and Szczesny could then be followed by Mohamed Salah from Chelsea, who is also likely to join on a temporary basis.
Man City fans, do you think it's a good idea for Pellegrini to let Dzeko go? Has he still got 'it'? Let u know in the comments box below.
