Roma have announced Edin Dzeko has signed a new three-year contract.
Dzeko was reportedly a target for Inter before they sealed a deal for Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku.
The 33-year-old has now committed his future to the Giallorossi by agreeing new terms on Friday.
“Over the last few weeks I have realised just how much the club wanted me to stay,” Dzeko told Roma’s official website.
“My conversations with the board, the work we’ve been doing with the coach [Paulo Fonseca], the relationship with my team-mates and the love of the fans has all made me realise once again what I had already learned during these four years – that Rome is my home.
“Here there is everything we need to win something and I am delighted to be able to stay here even longer.”

The former Manchester City and Wolfsburg striker was Serie A’s top goalscorer during the 2016-17 season but only hit nine goals in 33 appearances last term.
Earlier on Friday, Roma confirmed they have signed Turkish defender Yildrim Mert Cetin on a permanent transfer.
The 22-year-old arrives on a five-year deal from Genclerbirligi for a fee of €3million and will wear the number 15.
“I know the size of the club I am going to be representing,” he told Roma’s website.
“I’m very happy to be here, it’s a feeling I can’t really describe in words.
“I am confident I will be able to live up to the hopes of the club and the fans.”
