AC Milan Working on Deal to Acquire Manchester City's Edin Dzeko

Milan were one of the most persistent clubs in trying to acquire Dzeko when he emerged on the scene at Wolfsburg and were desperate to land him, but no deal went through.
Dzeko was linked with just about every big club in Europe before completing a move to City in January 2011. The 26-year-old has been a top performer for the club, scoring 28 goals in 62 matches.
His most important goal by far for City came in his last competitive match, when he headed in a corner kick in the 92nd minute to equalize against Queens Park Rangers. Two minutes later, teammate Sergio Aguero scored the goal to complete a miraculous victory to win the Premier League.
City are now looking to clean up in attack where they are overstocked and Milan are looking for another striker with Zlatan Ibrahimovic's future in doubt. The club failed to get Carlos Tevez from City in the winter and they have also been linked with another Eastlands striker, Mario Balotelli. But the Italian Euro 2012 hero, who has been linked with Milan for a while, doesn't seem likely to move and would be too expensive for Milan.
Despite financial strains, Milan may be able to afford Dzeko as City are believed to be asking for Milan to simply pay them £19 million over the next four years.
With the future of Ibrahimovic in doubt, Alexandre Pato's injury woes and Robinho's inconsistency and now apparent link away from Milan, Dzeko will help provide a consistent threat in attack.
