The lowdown: Career so far
Signed from AS Roma in 2021, the Bosnia veteran has also spent time at Manchester City, Wolfsburg, Teplice and Zeljeznicar during a trophy-filled career.
The 36-year-old frontman has scored a colossus 308 goals and registered 141 assists in 681 club career outings whilst winning the Premier League twice, along with the Bundesliga, Coppa Italia and FA Cup.
Now into the final 12 months of his deal at Inter (Transfermarkt), Dzeko could be set for a sensational return to England…
The latest: Wolves in the mix for Dzeko
It’s claimed that there is also admiration from Germany along with numerous suitors in Italy, but all approaches so far have been rejected by the Serie A giants.
Juventus have also had a move rebuffed for the man described as one of the ‘most underrated players in the 21st century’ by football talent scout Jacek Kulig in recent months.
The verdict: Short-term fix
Albeit very much in the twilight of his illustrious career, Bruno Lage’s Wolves squad could certainly accommodate someone of Dzeko’s clinical nature given their lacklustre performance when it came to goalscoring during 2021/22, ending the campaign with just 38 Premier League goals.
With misfiring youngster Fabio Silva expected to confirm a loan move to Anderlecht, there is more space for additional firepower, and the Bosnia veteran seems the ideal candidate to fill the void on a temporary basis.
Will Wolves sign Edin Dzeko?
Last season, the 6 foot 3 centre-forward defied his advancing years to score 17 times and provide another 10 assists in 48 appearances across all competitions – proof of a continued clinical threat and durability which will be useful in order to play a major role at Molineux.
Valued at £3.6m and earning a mooted £152,000 per week (Salary Sport), the Wolves hierarchy would likely be looking to reduce the Bosnian’s wage demands in order to fall in line with the rest of the Old Gold squad. However, if that were to be a possibility, this would be a short-term solution to a long-standing issue which would make plenty of sense.
