Edin Dzeko’s agent is pushing for a move to Juventus. “He’d be ideal for Antonio Conte’s tactics. We hoped he’d play more” regularly at Manchester City.
The striker was on the verge of a transfer to Turin when he was at Wolfsburg, but opted for the Premier League instead, where he won the title this season.
“Dzeko would be excellent for Juve,” agent Sead Susic told Radio Radio today.
“He is still tied to a long-term contract with City and ended the season well. However, we had hoped he would play some more.
“Maybe Roberto Mancini is wrong to use him so little, considering his average goal-scoring ratio, but in any case I think he’d be ideal for Conte’s tactics.”
Susic also revealed why the proposed transfer to Serie A broke down two years ago.
“At the time neither Milan nor Juve could sign him because the price-tag was too high. The Bianconeri are still interested, as are Real Madrid.
“We’re trying to work out what City will decide to do, then find a solution. Anzhi? I don’t think he’d go there.”
