Juventus interested in Man City striker Dzeko

Serie A leaders Juventus are lining up a £15m bid for Manchester City striker Edin Dzeko, who is their top striking target for the summer transfer window, according to the Daily Mirror.

Dzeko has turned in a number of impressive performances for the Premier League champions this season, but has struggled to find the net on a regular basis. He is also not guaranteed a place in the starting XI, with the competition having intensified in recent weeks due to the signing of Wilfried Bony in January from Swansea City.

Man City could opt to make changes in their attacking department over the summer, with Stevan Jovetic expected to leave after falling out of favour and being dropped from their Champions League squad. However, Juventus may have to raise their offer in order to convince them to sell Dzeko.

The 29-year-old only signed a new four-year deal at the Etihad Stadium earlier in the season, but could be tempted to Turin should he be promised a first-team place. But he would still face competition should he make the move, with former City teammate Carlos Tevez in fine form alongside Alvaro Morata.
