Inter manager Antonio Conte really wants Roma captain Edin Dzeko to be signed to bolster the options he has for the attack according to a report from Italian broadcaster Sport Mediaset, which was aired a short time ago.
Conte has long had the idea of playing a tandem of Romelu Lukaku and Dzeko in the attack and having failed to get him last Summer, Conte wants him in the upcoming transfer window.
Chelsea’s Olivier Giroud and newly released Mario Mandzukic do not convince Conte due to him not feeling that their player match the profile of striker that he is looking to have in his team.
It seems far more likely that Inter will manage to get a deal done for Dzeko, due largely in part to the fact that Roma no longer seem willing to have the Bosnia and Herzegovina national team player’s wages on their books.
This season former Manchester City forward Dzeko has made 36 appearances across all competitions to date, in which he has scored 17 goals and provided 10 assists for his teammates.
