Edin Dzeko almost certain to stay at Manchester City - agent

Manchester City striker Edin Dzeko's agent has said there have been no offers for his client and told Nezavisne: "The chances of him leaving are almost zero."

Dzeko, 29, joined City from Wolfsburg in 2011 but has regularly been linked with a move away from the club.

It was reported last week that the Bosnia international had rejected the chance to join Liverpool as part of an exchange deal for Raheem Sterling, but agent Irfan Redzepagic said there had been plenty of inaccurate speculation about his client.

"It turns out all the clubs are only after Edin -- I heard even some Bosnia & Herzegovina first league clubs are interested in him," he joked when asked about the rumours.

"Every day they are linking him to another team. First it was Atletico, then Juventus and now Roma, Chelsea ... These are all journalists' guesses and speculations, repeating with every transfer window.  I'm bored with repeating that there's nothing in it.

"Edin is currently on holidays. He hasn't rejected any offers, because there simply weren't any. That is the whole truth of it."

Edin Dzeko has won two Premier League titles as well as an FA Cup and Capital One Cup at City.

Dzeko signed a new deal until 2018 in August, and Redzepagic said: "Edin has a contract with City and is happy at the club."

The player scored 16 goals in 31 appearances when City won the Premier League in the 2013-14 campaign, but that dropped to four goals in 23 games last season.

"Where the playing time is concerned, several factors affected it," he said. "There were two injuries that took their toll but, all things considered, there's no reason for dissatisfaction with his time in the club where he won four trophies.

"Therefore, there chances of him leaving are almost zero."
