Chelsea and Liverpool to battle for Premier League star

Manchester City striker Edin Dzeko is wanted by Premier League rivals Liverpool and Chelsea, with City reportedly ready to listen to offers.

It has been suggested that a fee of around £25 million would be commanded to sign the Bosnian, as he still has three years left on his current deal, and Liverpool are keeping tabs, according to the Daily Mail.

Although the Mirror have suggested that Chelsea are also in for Dzeko, and will try to sign him for as little as £10 million as they look to replace Didier Drogba.

Dzeko joined City from Wolfsburg in January 2011 for a reported £27 million fee. He has scored a total of 50 goals in 130 appearances for City in the Premier League.

Dzeko was reportedly a target for many European clubs last season with Juventus, Inter Milan, Borussia Dortmund and former club Wolfsburg all showing interest.

After enduring a tough season where he has only started 11 times in the Premier League, scoring only four goals, it looks likely that he will leave.

The signing of Wilfried Bony in January pushed Dzeko further down the pecking order and he will need to move elsewhere to get regular first team football next term.

Should Manchester City sell Edin Dzeko this summer, and if so, which club will he move to?
