Dortmund keen on Edin Dzeko
German giants Borussia Dortmund are considering a summer bid for Manchester City striker Edin Dzeko, Bild + can reveal.
With both Ciro Immobile and Adrian Ramos failing to impress at Signal-Iduna Park, new coach Thomas Tuchel is ready to recruit a high-profile striker in the summer.
According to Bild +, the former Mainz boss has made Manchester City’s Edin Dzeko his primary target.
The Bosnian could finally leave the Citizens in search of first team football and he is reportedly ready to accept a pay cut in order to return to German Bundesliga.
Dzeko had enjoyed three and a half very successful years at Wolfsburg, bagging 66 goals in 111 Bundesliga appearances.
After returning to winning ways against Paderborn, Borussia Dortmund can be backed at 1/3 to see off Eintracht Frankfurt.
Hernandez nears permanent Real deal
Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez hopes to remain with Real Madrid beyond the current season, according to AS.
The Mexican joined los Blancos on a season-long loan in the summer, as he was unable to secure first team football at Old Trafford.
Chicharito has since been playing second fiddle to Karim Benzema at Santiago Bernabeu, but he, nonetheless, managed four La Liga goals while scoring the all-important winner in the Champions League quarter-final against Atletico Madrid.
As a result, Real Madrid seem ready to exercise a €10 million buy-out clause in his contract, with the striker also hoping to remain at the Bernabeu.
Hernandez is clearly satisfied with the number of opportunities he is getting in Madrid, and coach Carlo Ancelotti was full of praise for the 26-year-old after the triumph over Atletico.
Seeing as his contract at Manchester United is due to expire in just over a year, it is clear that the player has no future at Old Trafford.
Leverkusen, Wolfsburg vying for Weiser
Portuguese daily newspaper A Bola has learned that a number of Bundesliga sides are keen on Bayern Munich winger Mitchell Weiser.
The 21-year-old has been showing some potential at Alianz Arena, but the club chiefs do not believe he is worthy of a new contract.
As a result, Weiser will be leaving the club on a free transfer at the end of the season, and it looks as though he will be staying in German Bundesliga.
A Bola reports that Benfica were ready to offer him an escape route from Alianz Arena, but the talented footballer rejected an approach from the Eagles.
Namely, Weiser would prefer to remain in Germany, where the likes of Bayer Leverkusen, Wolfsburg, Schalke and Augsburg are showing interest.
The youngster took great advantage of numerous injury problems at Bayern Munich and managed one goal and two assists in eight Bundesliga outings this season.
