Comments emanating from Manchester City striker Edin Dzeko that he is unhappy in England have put Milan and Juventus on alert.
Both Serie A sides are in the market for a striker this summer and both have been linked with the Bosnian forward.
The Rossoneri have been paired with the forward as an alternative option to Carlos Tevez, whilst the Bianconeri have been rumoured to have been ‘promised’ the player, if City sign Robin Van Persie.
The duo will be on high alert now, after the player gave an interview to German magazine Kicker, in which he made clear that he could leave Manchester this summer.
“In the second part of the season I was slightly sidelined,” Dzeko reflected.
“And I have no idea why I lost this continuity. I came here to play, so I never considered this problem.
“I’m think I am too good to spend another season on the bench, so anything is possible for my future, despite the words of [manager Roberto] Mancini.
“However, there is nothing concrete just yet.”
Dzeko started just 16 games in the Premier League during the 2011-12 campaign, making a further 14 appearances from the bench, scoring 14 goals in total.
