Borussia Dortmund manager Jurgen Klopp has left open the possibility that the club could move for Manchester City forward Edin Dzeko (via ESPN FC).
Dortmund were hit with news that 20-year-old playmaker Mario Gotze is set to join rivals Bayern Munich in the summer. Striker Robert Lewandowski is expected to leave as well.
Dzeko, 27, has scored 12 Premier League goals this season in 29 appearances (15 as a substitute). He has been linked with Dortmund, but Klopp suggested Dzeko's wage demands might rule out a move.
I do not know anything of a meeting with Dzeko. But if you think about what will happen to us in the next few years, we have to think about him.
But judging by information we have, the wages he is content with technically do not fit ours, as we will not bend. We do not throw about peanuts.
Still, we will leave all doors open.
