Dzeko And Crocky On The Move

Dzeko And Crocky On The Move

German newswires have clicked into gear again this morning with the news that Vfl Wolfsburg's Edin Dzeko is in London with the MCFC camp who are preparing for Arsenal...

Bild reports that the giant Bosnian hitman left Wolfsburg's Spanish winter training camp in Marbella early this morning and boarded a flight to London where he is now about to undergo a medical which should seal his £27 million move to The Citizens.

It's expected that the 24 year old Dzeko will make his debut at Leicester in the FA Cup this weekend.

Meanwhile, the hapless 29 year old striker Roque Santa Cruz is in talks with Lazio over a permanent move.

Should have gone for Dzeko in the first place. He was untested at the time, but surely a better risk than RSC who was crocked.
