Edin Dzeko's agent has fuelled speculation over a possible exit from Manchester City for his client and even said which clubs the striker would be keen to move to.

The Serbian forward only signed a new long-term contract in August, reward for scoring 26 goals last term at Manchester City won the Premier League title.

However, the 28-year-old has struggled to match that form this season, finding the back of the net just four times and half of those coming in the 7-0 Capital One Cup win over Sheffield Wednesday in September.

With Wilfried Bony arriving in January speculation over a possible exit has surfaced and his agent has done little to quell such talk.

"Dzeko is 28 years old and wants to play for the most prestigious teams in Europe," Irfan Radzipegic reportedly said.

"If he were to leave Manchester City he'd prefer a big club like Juventus or Atletico Madrid."


Whilst Manuel Pellegrini has indicated he wants four strikers at the Etihad the current system of using David Silva behind a lone striker means the Manchester City manager will struggle to keep his current options content.
