Juventus approach for Dzeko

Sportitalia claim Juventus have started negotiations with Roma for Edin Dzeko as an alternative to Arkadiusz Milik and Alvaro Morata.

New coach Andrea Pirlo seemingly wants a strong and hard-working centre-forward who can hold up the ball for his teammates as well as score goals.

Milik has long been linked, including when Maurizio Sarri was at the helm, but Napoli want €50m for the Poland international.

Pirlo’s former teammate Morata is another option, currently struggling for playing time with Atletico Madrid.

According to TV channel Sportitalia, Juventus have now begun initial talks with Roma for Dzeko.

The Bosnia international has been in Serie A since 2016 and is under contract with Roma until June 2022.

Dzeko had already been on the radar of Inter last summer, but opted to extend his deal at the Olimpico instead.

He scored 19 goals with 14 assists in 43 competitive games for the Giallorossi this season.
