Roma might pull the plug on Edin Dzeko after just one season, as Sunderland could bring him back to the Premier League.
The Bosnia international has failed to impress since arriving from Manchester City at a cost of €15m.
He scored eight Serie A goals in 31 games, plus two in seven Champions League appearances.
Dzeko above all became famous for some astonishing misses and as his confidence evaporated, he began to be left on the bench.
According to Sky Sport Italia, the Giallorossi have found a club willing to take him off their hands this summer.
Sunderland are interested in signing Dzeko, but have so far offered only £11m (€14m) compared to the £15m (€19m) asking price.
Wages should not be an issue, as they are believed to be worth £140,000 per week.
