Out of favor Man City striker has confirmed his transfer to Roma, agreeing terms with the Serie A club according to Sky Sports. Now it is just a matter of settling on a fee…
It is a transfer that has been rumbling for a number of weeks. Bosnian front man Edin Dzeko was always going to be too good to sit on Man City’s bench, but perhaps never quite good enough to force his way into the team. Especially if Manual Pellegrini is going to tweak the shape this season, opting for a 4-2-3-1 formation to get the best out of new signing Raheem Sterling and City’s best creative force David Silva. Dzeko has always scored goals – a remarkable 50 in 74 starts, no less – but with Sergio Aguero at the club, very much played the bridesmaid role. He even scored the ultimate ‘bridesmaid’ goal, getting the oft-forgotten equalizer in the legendary last-day encounter with QPR that clinched City’s first title in 2011/12. Aguero got the winner, of course. Personal terms have been agreed, Roma and City just need to agree a price thought to be in the region of £8m. Fri, Jul 31, 2015 04:10:00 AM

Man City boss Manual Pellegrini seems resigned to the fact that striker Edin Dzeko will leave the club before the start of the new season…

All the talk this summer has been about who is coming in at Man City, but it seems increasingly clear that one player heading for the exit is striker Edin Dzeko. The Bosnia-Hercegovina international has played just 26 minutes of their pre-season tour, coming on as a substitute v Real Madrid (when the match was effectively over). And missing the match with Roma, a club he has been linked with. City boss Pellegrini admitted ahead of the Madrid match: ‘It is not clear if he will continue here.’ Despite always scoring goals for City – hitting a remarkable 50 in 74 starts, Dzeko has never been first choice. Sergio Aguero is – quite rightly – the main man and the suggestion is that City will be employing more of a 4-5-1 formation this season, which will limit his chances further. Now aged 29, first team football will be more appealing than batting for bench space with Wilfried Bony and Stefan Jovetic.

The agent of Manchester City striker Edin Dzeko has vehemently denied that his client held talks with Roma to discuss a potential move to Serie A.

The rumour – fuelled by the Italian press – claimed Dzeko would be used in a deal involving fellow countryman Miralem Pjanic with the midfielder moving to the Etihad. However despite claims that Dzeko would go "running" to the Giallorossi Irfan Redzepagic [his agent] dismissed any talk as nonsense revealing Dzeko has had no contact with the club and remains happy in Manchester. Following the arrival of Wilfried Bony in January competition for game time is fierce with Sergio Aguero always likely to start if fit. Dzeko was restricted to just 11 BPL starts last season and played less than a thousand minutes – his lowest return for a full season since joining back in January, 2011.

Manuel Pellegrini confirmed Manchester City have a clean bill of health ahead of the Week 27 clash with Liverpool

After James Milner returned from a minor knee ligament injury to face Barcelona in the Champions League Manuel Pellegrini confirmed Manchester City have a clean bill of health "the whole squad is fit." David Silva, Yaya Toure and Sergio Aguero were all hugely impressive during the win over Newcastle so don’t expect too much to change. With Stevan Jovetic seemingly out of the equation Wilfried Bony looks to be battling it out with Edin Dzeko for a place alongside Kun but with the Bosnian back to full fitness he won’t be giving up his place easily.

Edin Dzeko played well when Manchester City faced off against Hull City this week.

Dzeko wasn't phenomenal but was active and created some danger in front of Allan McGregor. He had two shots on target, three corners won, three passes intercepted, two fouls won, and a tackle won on his way to 15 phantom points. If Dzeko continues to start, he will be a decent fantasy option. However, his starting spot is far from guaranteed so make sure you watch this space for further news on his status in the rotation.

Edin Dzeko is still out with a calf injury and his updated timeline sees him returning in January.

Manchester City have three strikers and all are injured at the moment. James Milner started up top for the defending champions last time out and can be expected to lead the line again this weekend. Dzeko is not worth owning outside of the deepest of leagues at the moment.

Edin Dzeko has picked up an injury during warmups as Manchester City get set to face Leicester, and has been replaced in the starting eleven by Jose Pozo.

City fans will be holding their breath as their star striker Sergio Aguero is out for a spell and Stevan Jovetic was not fit enough to make today's squad. It is a major blow to those who invested in Dzeko as a bargain forward either for just this week or longer term in games with limited transfers. Pozo is making his first PL start and will be asked to at least hold up the line for City's more experienced midfielders.

Bosnian striker Edin Dzeko is a doubt for the upcoming Euro qualifying game in Israel after the substitute was replaced just four minutes after coming on during the second half at Loftus Road.

City are in the middle of a poor run & with the scores level after 60 minutes Pellegrini decided to gamble & revert back to the same [4-4-2] formation that served his team so well at the beginning of the season with Dzeko supporting Aguero. However within a minute Pellegrini was readying substitute Frank Lampard after Dzeko strained his calf charging down his own header & subsequent touch following a Joe Hart clearance. His absence could provide Stevan Jovetic with a chance to recapture his early form having struggled since missing five weeks through injury back in September.

Dzeko scored on either side of halftime and Manchester City got three points but it wasn't pretty.

Yes, City got four goals (Aguero, Dzeko, Dzeko and Lampard) but it was their late first half collapse that saw Hull City score two to draw even that sticks out. Eliaquim Mangala managed to score an own goal, concede a penalty and was shown a yellow card. Dzeko and Lampard let the defender off the hook with second half goals to seal the win.

Manchester City striker Edin Dzeko has signed a new four-year deal with the defending Premier League champions.

Dzeko was very nearly on his way out of the Etihad door towards the end of Roberto's Mancini's reign, but the striker has enjoyed working under Manuel Pellegrini and should play a key role for Manchester City as they look to defend their Premier League title. The 28-year-old joins Sergio Aguero, Samir Nasri, Aleksandar Kolarov, Vincent Kompany and David Silva in committing their futures to the club.

Edin Dzeko scored in Bosnia's 3-1 win over Iran as the Bosnians were able to walk away from the World Cup with three points.

Bosnia were already ruled out of the next round but came out to play against Iran and showed why they were hyped up before the tournament. They played well and saw off Iran without much trouble. Iran had a chance to make the next round with a win and a Nigeria loss but struggled again in attack and were only able to score one goal. Iran's only goal in this tournament came from Reza Ghoochannejhad, who looks like the future of Iranian football.

Edin Dzeko and friends played a solid game against Argentina but struggled in delivering the final pass.

Edin Dzeko struggled in this match, failed to get open, and wasn't a problem for Argentina's defenders. Bosnia controlled parts of the game but they lacked speed and couldn't create chances. They scored a late consolation goal through substitute Vedad Ibisevic but it wasn't enough to get any points from this match. Bosnia should be much better against Iran and Algeria and there is fantasy value to be had here for the rest of the group stage.

Edin Dzeko starred in Bosnia and Herzegovina's 2-1 win over the Ivory Coast by scoring two great goals.

Bosnia and Herzegovina started off great and took a 2-0 lead through Edin Dzeko. Dzeko was doing everything and is clearly the best player on his squad. Bos & Herz have a manageable group and Dzeko will be a great pick in Fantasy World Cup. With that said, I wouldn't recommend many Bosnian defenders. Didier Drogba came off the bench and exposed the defense of Bosnia, scoring a great goal and having an overall great impact.
