Report - Inter Milan interested in Man City striker Edin Dzeko

Three time European Cup winners Inter Milan are looking to Manchester City's Edin Dzeko as they plan to rebuild this summer.

According to reports from Talksport and Daily Mirror, Italian giants Inter Milan are looking to bolster their attacking options with Manchester City striker, Edin Dzeko. 

The Bosnian has struggled to hold down a regular spot since his arrival in 2011 from VfL Wolfsburg for £27 Million. Dzeko played a vital role in City's first ever Premier League title as he scored the equaliser on the final day of the season against Queens Park Ranagers, in injury time, before striker partner, Sergio Aguero stole the headlines with his famous title winning goal. 

Dzeko, known to be a passionate AC Milan fan, could be on his way to Milan in the summer as Inter are looking to revamp their ageing under ambitious owner, Erick Thohir. Inter Milan have already secured the services of Hernanes and Manchester United's captain Nemanja Vidic for next season. Talksport reports that Thohir spoke of Inter's early recruitment:

"We're building a team for the next few years. With Hernanes I think we have leadership in the middle. With Vidic we have a leader in the defence," he said.

"We might add a few players for next season. I think we need to create stability in the team but I think by next season the average age of the team will be 26.5 years old.

"For next season we're going to add more players but, at the same time, we want to keep some of the players that we have right now. The most important thing, as I keep saying, is to balance the ages and also balance the positions."

Reports in The Mirror  suggest Inter plan to raid Manchester once again, but this time for the Bosnian and will offer up to £15 Million to land the 27-year-old. Manchester City boss, Manuel Pellegrini maybe tempted to sell the striker, who isn't a guaranteed starter, particularly as he will be in the final year of his contract next season.
