Edin Dzeko dismisses Manchester City transfer rumours

Wolfsburg’s star striker Edin Dzeko has again dismissed rumours linking him with a January move away from the Bundesliga outfit.

The 24-year-old Bosnia international remains the centre of frenzied speculation, with Manchester City reported to be lining up a missive bid for Dzeko’s services.

However, the talented frontman told Kicker-Sportmagazin: “I have been saying that I am fully focused on Wolfsburg for the current season.

“That is what I am still doing. I don't see the point in thinking about a transfer.I am aware of the speculation, I am aware of almost every rumour.

“I know I have not said much with regard to a transfer, but I have not agreed anything. I have not signed anything with any of the clubs mentioned.

“Reading stories about me moving to this club or that club is really making me laugh. They are not true.”
