A striker seems to be top of the transfer list for Arsene Wenger this summer, with a number of high profile stars linked with moves to the Emirates. Edin Dzeko is one such name, and our chances of landing the Bosnian have been handed a boost following Manuel Pellegrini’s recent comments, as reported by the Metro.
The Manchester City boss claims the 29-year-old could be on the move this summer, with an exit certainly not out of the question.
He wasn’t included in either of their most recent matches, with Pellegrini citing the fact that he could be leaving the club as the reason.
“Edin didn’t play the last game as it’s not clear if he will continue here or not but he still working with the whole squad,” said Pellegrini.
We could arguably do far better than the 29-year-old, who doesn’t seem to offer a huge amount that our own Olivier Giroud doesn’t already bring to the table.
With links to the likes of Robert Lewandowski and Karim Benzema (via The Telegraph), Dzeko would unquestionably be a step down.

Dzeko has struggled for game time recently, so it’s understandable that he would be looking for an Etihad exit. But is he the top quality striker we need?
