Edin Dzeko has no intention of leaving Manchester City, his agent has claimed, while at the same time playing down talk of a possible switch to Inter for his client.

The Bosnian hitman has struggled to secure a starting spot with the English champions this season, though he has been lethal off the bench.

Dzeko has found the back of the net ten times in the Premier League this season, while he has provided four assists for his team-mates. However, the 26-year-old has only started nine matches, while in six of those nine he has been withdrawn before the 90 minutes were up.

But the former Wolfsburg man is not looking for the exit door, his agent Irfan Redzepagic has said.


"I’m not aware of interest from Inter", he told Tutto Mercato.

"Inter have never contacted me and I would have rejected it if they had because Edin is happy at Manchester City.

"It is not his intention to leave here.

"His contract runs for two and a half years, so there is no reason to talk about his future."

Dzeko has long attracted suitors in Italy, with his game considered to be a perfect fit for Serie A.

Were Manchester City to give any indication that they are open to parting with the Bosnian international, there would surely be a flurry of bids for his services.

As things stand though, Dzeko appears an integral part of the Citizens’ squad.
