Inter striker Edin Dzeko feels that right now is not the right moment to be thinking about the prospect of a contract extension with the Nerazzurri.

Asked about the matter by Italian broadcaster Sky Sport Italia after the Nerazzurri’s 6-1 win over Bologna, as reported by FCInterNews, the Bosnian brushed it off, suggesting that right now is not the time.

Recent reports have suggested that a new deal for Dzeko would not be out of the question, particularly given the quality of some of his performances for the Nerazzurri this season.

If the 36-year-old had started off the campaign expecting that he would be nothing more than a backup striker for Romelu Lukaku, the reality has been quite different.

However, there is still plenty of work to do on the pitch, with Inter having ground to make up in the Serie A table, as well as massive fixtures in the Champions League and the Coppa Italia on the other side of the World Cup break.

When he was asked about the question of a new contract, Dzeko replied “That’s not a question for me to answer right now.”

Of his goal against Bologna, a brilliant volley which equalized not long after the Nerazzurri had conceded the opener, the Bosnian said that “I got the ball, I wanted to give it immediately to Denzel in behind.”

“I made a run into the area, I was expecting a bit better cross, I tried for it and it worked out.”

“Each game has its own story,” Dzeko continued, “when you play every three days it’s important to reset your mind immediately and forget about the last match.”

“We’re not happy with the match in Turin but we have to look forward,” he said, “today we won and played well.”

“We still have one more to play before the break, we’re always looking forward and never backwards.”

Of some of the Nerazzurri’s early season struggles, Dzeko said that “Maybe right now we’re not doing ourselves justice, in Turin we could have won, but we lost because of mistakes that we made.”

“We didn’t expect to be eleven points behind Napoli at this stage, but the past few months things never seem to go our way, even look at the first goal by Bologna.”

“Maybe it’s partly a problem with mentality, not one of quality, the head matters a lot and always makes the difference.”

“We didn’t start very well tonight,” he noted, “but then the goal woke us up and we scored six.”
