The Manchester Evening News are front paging Manchester City are keeping tabs on German club Wolfsburg's Edin Dzeko, Hughes feels he can lure Edin Dzeko to City despite the fact Wolfsburg have secured Champions League football.

23 year old Bosnian Edin Dzeko would be the perfect aquisition for Manchester City and would be partner perfect for a player like Tevez or Eto'o.

Bundesliga player of the year Dzeko is 6ft 3.5 in which makes him just the man for Mark Hughes with City in need of tall aerial players.

There is no doubting City do not have the ability to attract players with Eto'o supposedly open to joining City and Gareth Barry joining City, whats to say Tevez does not follow, the ball is firmly in his court at present which Tevez will decide his future after Argentina's qualifying games.

Blackburn Rovers and Portsmouth were looking at Dzeko as a replacement for Santa Cruz and Defoe but wolfsburg are reluctant to let him go however City have the power to persuade.

City watched the 23-year-old several times this season as he bagged 30 goals in 33 appearances for German champions Wolfsburg.

Wolfsburg paid around £3m for Dzeko and would look to atleast triple their profit.

Powerful in the air, the 6ft 3in forward added 10 assists to his 30 goals and, alongside the 30-year-old Brazilian Grafite, formed the most successful partnership in Bundesliga history.

Sarajevo-born Dzeko has played 17 times for his country and bagged a dozen goals. He has seven in the current World Cup qualifying campaign as his country sits second to Spain in Group Five.

Indeed Dzeko has what it takes for English football but will Manchester City pull off what i would see as a pretty exciting deal?.

Its no secret that Mark Hughes is an admirer of the Bundesliga, we will have to wait and see.
