Manchester City striker Edin Dzeko has reportedly agreed personal terms with Roma and will now hope the two clubs can reach an agreement over a transfer fee.
Dzeko’s agent has protested against claims that a deal has been reached between his client and the Italian giants, but the rumours have not gone away since.
According to Sky Sport Italia, Roma have agreed a five-year contract worth €4.5m per season plus performance-related bonuses with the Bosnian international, which marks a reduction in his wage that he was receiving at the Etihad.
It is understood that City are open to selling the striker, although they are hopeful that Adem Ljajic could be included in an exchange deal with the Giallorossi.
According to the report, as noted by Football Italia, negotiations between the two parties is intensifying and they could reach an agreement sooner rather than later.
Manuel Pellegrini will be looking to make changes to his squad after their failures last season, and Dzeko’s departure will certainly give him funds and space in his squad to work with moving forward.
