Still a starter at 37, Edin Dzeko has proved invaluable for Inter since signing from Roma two seasons ago. The Nerazzurri are eager to tie the Bosnian down to a contract extension, as he nears the end of his club deal in the summer of 2023. Negotiations are underway, but the lure of a Premier League outfit risks preventing Dzeko from penning his signature.

As per latest reports from FCInterNews, Dzeko is being targeted by a top tier mid-table club from England. The unnamed club is reportedly ready to offer Dzeko a €5M net per season contract, one more than what Inter are bringing to the table. He already earns €5M net plus bonuses at the Italian giants currently.
Moreover, there lies the prospect of finishing his career in the league where he made a name for himself with Manchester City, playing a pivotal part in their rise to domestic dominance last decade. He has 72 goals in 189 appearances for the Cityzens.
