“We have the chance to win the league this year and the decisive factor could be Edin Dzeko. This player can decide titles and that is why we want him.”

Dzeko won the Bundesliga golden boot award last season and has already scored 10 times this season, taking his overall tally to 66 in 111 games.

Man City go into the New Year tied for first place in the Premier League and it has to worry the other title contenders that City will be spending €50 -€75 million in January to strengthen their squad.
