AS Roma’s Bosnian international striker Edin Dzeko has declined advances from Premier League outfit West Ham, preferring a move to Inter, Milano based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport reports.
According to the report, Inter CEO Marotta and Sporting Director Ausilio, have already decided to strike after the former Man City striker has so far failed to agree terms with Roma over a contract extension. The player has been wanted by Inter in the recent past and has made it clear that he prefers staying in Italy and the Serie A over a return to the Premier League, effectively shutting the door on West Ham.
Furthermore, the Gazzetta reports that negotiations between the two clubs could commence already after the match between the two sides on Saturday. A deal between the parties hinges on the fact that Mauro Icardi were to be sold, but so far no such interest has been recorded other than a small inquiry by Atletico Madrid.
