AC Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani has confirmed the Italian side’s interest in Dzeko, who was a major player in the German clubÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s first ever Bundesliga title triumph.
The Wolfsburg striker has previously been linked with both Arsenal and Manchester City. But Milan are in pole position to sign the Bosnian after Galliani confirmed he had met with Dzeko’s father on Saturday.
He told Sky Italia: “I was in Sarajevo for Dzeko.
“We like him a lot. Now we wait for Wolfsburg.”
The 23-year-old grabbed an amazing 32 goals in 34 games for Wolfsburg last season and has scored 12 times in just 17 games for Bosnia.
Wolfsburg boss Felix Magath is desperate to keep the former Fk Teplice star, but the player is understood to have set his heart on a move to Serie A.
Dzeko has been quoted as saying: “They [Milan] have always been my favourite club, right back to my days as a small boy, growing up in Sarajevo.”
