EDIN EYES EYE-TIES

Midweek Sport - - THURSDAY AUG 9 - By CHRIS MCKENNA

EDIN DZEKO has re­vealed his in­ter­est in a move to Italy as the dis­grun­tled Bos­nian wants to bow out at Manch­ester City.

Dzeko, 26, has in­creased spec­u­la­tion over his fu­ture fol­low­ing last week’s reve­la­tion that he was un­happy at be­ing used as a sub­sti­tute in City’s ti­tle run-in last sea­son.

And the striker has done lit­tle to ease such talk with his lat­est reve­la­tion.

He said: “I al­ways fol­low the Ital­ian league and one day I’d like to play in it.

“For now I am a City player, I will stay here. I will have to wait un­til the end of the month. I’ll see what hap­pens, and if some­one else comes.”

One of the in­ter­ested Ital­ian clubs is AC Mi­lan who want to re­place Zla­tan Ibrahi­movic who joined Paris St Ger­main.

Dzeko (left) added: “I also know that Mi­lan has sold two of its best play­ers.”

City boss Roberto Mancini has hinted that the Blues won’t be sign­ing Robin van Per­sie.

But even if the Dutch­man doesn’t move to the Premier League cham­pi­ons, Dzeko knows he is down the peck­ing or­der at the Eti­had Sta­dium.

Car­los Tevez’s re­turn means he is now fourth choice striker – be­hind the Ar­gen­tine, Sergio Aguero and Mario Balotelli.
