Arsenal Make a Serious Bid for Dzeko

Arsenal appear to closing in on another summer target, Edin Dzeko, the prolific Bosnian striker who currently plies his trade at Bundesliga champions Wolfsburg.

Arsenal and Manchester City are both reported to have made bids for the player, but as with all things to do with Arsenal we undertake our transfers in secrecy rather than in the glare of the media.

According to the player’s agent Irfan Redžepagić the bid is serious and will be considered by Wolfsburg ahead of Manchester City.

“It is not realistic for Dzeko who is a leading player in Germany and due to perform in the Champions League to opt for an average club like Manchester City. Arsenal is the other case. We will discuss their offer seriously” Redžepagić said while in Germany.

“I will talk over the weekend with Edin and we will see what is best for him. On Monday it is back to the negotiations with Wolfsburg” said Redžepagić.

What is ominous in the last statement is the implications that negotiations are underway with Wolfsburg.  This will not be the first time that a possible bid has been used by an agent to negotiate a new improved contract for his player.

The lure of the Premier League might be too much for Dzeko to resist and his arrival or even the talk of a possible arrival must indicate the imminent departure of Adebayor.

 

UPDATE

Dzeko has said he will make an announcement on Wednesday as to who his potential club might be.   Things have taken a turn for the worse for Arsenal, or it could be agent talk, but AC Milan are now talking about a £25 million bid for Dzeko.  Furthermore, Arsenal were not mentioned amongst the possible clubs for Dzeko.

As I said this could be the agent trying to flush out Arsenal or it could genuine.

  1. we don’t need a striker
    VELA is coming

  2. If we get him then Ade will be going for sure, I’ve watched Dzeko and he is a fantastic player and a brilliant finisher which is what we need. Ac Milan’s bid concerns me but who would want to join Milan now that Kaka and Ancelotti have left? It won’t interest many club going there

  3. I think that part about press-conference on Wednesday is 6 days old, since he had that press-conference last Wednesday, and on his website it says “tomorrow (Wednesday)”

  5. Vincent Toolit

    AW please bring him home and sell Ade, we need someone like him who can score many goals

  6. we need dzeko c’mon arsene wenger break your wage budget and go buy him because he is a great finisher just what we need to win the premier league

  7. “It is not realistic for Dzeko who is a leading player in Germany and due to perform in the Champions League to opt for an average club like Manchester City. Arsenal is the other case. We will discuss their offer seriously”
    im really happy to hear that there are players who still choose to play for a good team rather than a shitty/rich ones

  8. wenger need to fast on dzeko transfer plz do and send adebayor out

  9. Arsenal needs strikers. How many Arsenal fans are there on Word Press. Millions.

  10. @keith

    i dont lough at your Huntular but how can you compare Dzeko and Huntelaar? that’s pointless
    Van persie is okay!good striker and nice technique
    (Bergkamp)= superior *legend*
    Huntelaar=Joker(bad joke) annoying player
    Dzeko=diamond
