Edin Dzeko has set his sights on repeating the success of his Manchester City stint after clinching a loan move to Roma.
The Bosnia-Herzegovina international has arrived at the Stadio Olimpico on a temporary deal worth €4million, but the Serie A could make the transfer permanent for a further €11m.
“I’m immediately happy to be here, the weather is nice,” Dzeko said as he was presented on Thursday. “I’ve followed Roma because my friend Miralem Pjanic is here. It’s a great club.
“I have a good relationship with Miralem. Both he and [director of football Walter] Sabbatini told me good things about being here – the climate, the city and the fans.
“Roma have big plans for the future and I hope to help the club reach them.”
Dzeko collected two Premier League titles, an FA Cup, a League Cup and a Community Shield during his time at the Etihad Stadium and remains hungry for silverware.
“I have spent four wonderful years with Manchester City,” he added. “They have grown a lot over the years. I hope to repeat the same path here.
“Working hard I hope to achieve the things I did in Manchester with Roma.”
