Inter CEO Beppe Marotta has dropped a major hint that Bosnian international striker Edin Dzeko could sign a contract extension with the Nerazzurri.

Speaking earlier today with Italian radio outlet Radio Anch’io Lo Sport, as reported via FcInternews, the Nerazzurri CEO for Sport seemed to confirm that the club are open and willing to extending the veteran striker’s contract.

“I don’t think so [that Dzeko situation will end up like Perisic’s], he has demonstrated that he wants to stay with us. He deserved a contract extension, he is a great professional and is attached to the shirt.

“Like many older players he has a vision for scoring goals. Our desire is to renew and extend but the player has to also expressly state that he wants this.”

Edin Dzeko joined Inter in the summer of 2021 from Serie A rivals Roma to replace Romelu Lukaku who was sold to Chelsea that same summer for a reported record fee of €115 million.

The former Manchester City striker has since joining the Nerazzurri featured 70 times across all competitions scoring 26 goals in the process.

Two of these goals came in yesterday’s 3-2 win in the Serie A away against Atalanta at the Gewiss Stadium in Bergamo, which saw Inter finally defeat a direct rival this season after failing to do so the four previous occasions.

Edin Dzeko’s current deal with the Nerazzurri expires at the end of June 2023 but it seems that he will extend his contract with the club beyond that point.
