According to a report by Italian newspaper Corriere dello Sport, via Sport Witness, West Ham United have been ‘offered‘ the chance to sign AS Roma striker Edin Dzeko in January by an agent – coming as the former Premier League target man is currently at the centre of an alleged fall out with manager Paulo Fonseca.
Dzeko, who enjoyed a prolific spell with Manchester City in England, winning two league titles, one FA Cup, one League Cup and the Community Shield (Transfermarkt), has now apparently been offered out to the Irons as David Moyes continues his striker chase.
Should West Ham sign Edin Dzeko?
100%, still incredible
No, need a more long term option
Just sign a striker already!
Dzeko ‘offered’ to West Ham
Entering the list of linked attacking stars West Ham could reportedly snap up this month, Dzeko is now claimed to be on the table for GSB due to an Italian agent presenting him as a new striking option.
As a result, Dzeko could leave this month, with this report saying an agent has now swooped in to try and take advantage of Dzeko’s reported unrest in the Italian capital.
Indeed, he has allegedly ‘offered‘ the 34-year-old to West Ham in this potential bid to orchestrate a January deal, gifting the Irons a chance to land his signing.
Transfer Tavern take
Having plenty of experience in the Premier League and that very top level, Dzeko could be a viable option for Moyes and co – with West Ham cult hero Paolo Di Canio certainly rating him.
In an interview with Sky Sports recently (via Area Napoli.it), Di Canio lavished Roma’s forward with praise – branding him an ‘extraordinary player’.
This theory is supported by the fact, despite his age, Dzeko has still managed 7 goals in 14 Serie A starts this season – winning 3.1 aerial duels per 90 and attempting 2.7 shots a game on average (WhoScored).
Time will tell whether GSB take advantage of this apparent situation, but if they do, it could certainly be worth their efforts as the final stretch of this window nears.
