Report: Manchester City demand £20 million for Edin Dzeko, Chelsea interested

Edin Dzeko Bosnia

Edin Dzeko is on Manchester City's for-sale list this summer - but Liverpool are no longer said to be in the running.

According to the Daily Mail, Manchester City are willing to listen to offers for striker Edin Dzeko - but the Bosnian international will not be allowed to leave on the cheap.

The report claims that the 2013/14 Premier League champions are prepared to let Dzeko depart the Etihad Stadium but are in no real rush to sell, with a fee of at least £20 million expected to be sought for the striker.

Despite a recent article from the Daily Mail, Liverpool are no longer thought to be in the running for Dzeko's signature. The Merseyside club have recently signed Danny Ings from Burnley after a disappointing season for their front men.

The 29-year-old, who cost Manchester City £27 million in 2011, has scored 65 goals in 155 appearances for the Premier League club.

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has allegedly (the Mail's report claims) been an admirer of the former Wolfsburg striker and is also in the market for a striker. Diego Costa had a injury-plagued debut season at Stamford Bridge and that leaves just Loic Remy at Chelsea (or Patrick Bamford, although he appears to be set to move out on loan once again) following the departure of Didier Drogba.

Stevan Jovetic's future at Manchester City also remains uncertain.
