Edin Dzeko: Continues to be linked with a move away from Manchester City
Manchester City have rubbished reports suggesting Edin Dzeko is closing on a summer switch to Italian giants AC Milan.
An agent claiming to be acting on behalf of the Bosnian striker was quoted on Wednesday as saying that a deal to take Dzeko to Serie A has a '70 per cent' chance of going through.
Milan are known to be in the market for attacking talent after agreeing to sell Zlatan Ibrahimovic to Paris St Germain.
That transfer has now gone through, so the Rossoneri are set to step up their efforts to bring in a replacement.
Dzeko, who has been targeted by Milan in the past, is believed to be in their thoughts.
City, though, insist they have received no approach and say they have never heard of Sead Susic, the representative claiming to be working on a deal.
"The club have no knowledge of the so-called spokesman Mr Susic, nor has it given a mandate to any third party to discuss the transfer of Edin Dzeko, who remains a Manchester City player," said a spokesman for the Premier League champions.
