Edin Dzeko: Has been linked with January move
DZEKO TO JUVE RUMOUR DENIED
The agent of Manchester City striker Edin Dzeko has rubbished reports suggesting his client would be interested in a move to Juventus.
The Bosnia international made a flying start to the 2011/12 campaign, netting six times in City's opening three matches of the Premier League season.
He has gone off the boil somewhat since, with Sergio Aguero and Mario Balotelli having outshone him in the scoring stakes of late.
It had been suggested that Dzeko could be tempted to move on in January, just 12 months after his arrival at the Etihad Stadium.
City spent big to lure him away from Wolfsburg, but reports claimed the 25-year-old may be willing to start afresh elsewhere.
A switch to Juventus has been touted, with Dzeko said to have discussed a move to Turin with his former Wolfsburg colleague Andrea Barzagli.
His representative has, however, dismissed the speculation and insists the frontman has no plans to turn his back on City.
"I know news has been circulating that there have been telephone conversations between Dzeko and Barzagli, but it is not possible to negotiate," Irfan Redzepagic told tuttomaercatoweb.com.
"Juventus cannot negotiate and neither can Inter or AC Milan. Edin is happy in England and at City he has everything that he wants."
