Edin Dzeko is perfect for Tottenham following reported £28m City deal for Bony

Edin Dzeko Bosnia

Manchester City forward Edin Dzeko would be a wonderful new addition for Tottenham Hotspur if they could get him.

Following the news – as reported by the BBC – that Manchester City have agreed a £28million fee for Swansea City striker Wilfried Bony, there will be questions over the futures of some of the Blues' current players, not least Edin Dzeko.

City have three quality forwards in Dzeko, Sergio Aguero and Stevan Jovetic, but with Bony reportedly set to complete his transfer shortly, the Bosnia-Herzegovina international could struggle for game-time.

With a contract until the summer of 2018 and a fine goal-scoring record (70 goals in 176 games for City and 162 in 344 total club appearances) he will not come cheap, but there is one club in the Premier League who would be wise to make a move.

Tottenham Hotspur need a goal-scorer, and following a report from the Stoke Sentinel that Stoke City could make a loan bid for Dzeko, surely Spurs should follow suit with a move of their own.

Harry Kane has impressed this season but the same cannot be said of Emmanuel Adebayor and Roberto Soldado, and while Tottenham have been linked with a number of forwards, few know the Premier League as well as Dzeko.

Quite simply, the 28-year-old City player would be a fantastic addition to Tottenham’s line-up, and if he really is free to move on, the North London club would be foolish not to try their hand.
