Manchester United assistant manager Mike Phelan has hinted that the Premier League champions could make a move to sign Wolfsburg striker Edin Dzeko.

Dzeko, 23, has been linked with a host of top clubs from around Europe since helping Wolfsburg win the German league title last season.

The Bosnian, who has 14 goals in 23 appearances for his country, scored against United when the sides met in the Champions League earlier this season and Phelan has admitted the club have been looking at him since because he has the ideal style for the English game.

“I’m sure there are a number of teams looking at him. Are we one on them? We are looking at talent all of the time and we are in there with the rest of them,” Phelan said.

“He showed his threat in the game at Old Trafford and he appeals because he is a tall, skilful boy and in some ways he is an ideal player for the English league.

“He has stature, his feet are good and he is producing some good performances. I am sure everybody has looked at him.”
