The youngest member of The 4th Official and an ardent Premier League fan who is basically obsessed with scouting young talents and is consumed by the idea of finding the perfect number 10.

Recent reports from the Daily Mail (via Calcio Mercato) suggest that Manchester United are keen on signing Inter Milan striker Edin Dzeko in the upcoming transfer window as Erik ten Hag looks set to add to his attacking options in January.

‘According to Calcio Mercato, Dzeko has emerged as a possibility in what would represent a stunning return to Manchester after a five-year spell at neighbours City where he won two Premier League titles.’ – the report read.

‘The 36-year-old Bosnian international is out of contract in the summer and Inter have not yet opened up discussions about an extension.’

The Ideal Short-term Solution To Manchester United’s Needs?

Edin Dzeko signed for Manchester City from German side VfL Wolfsburg in January 2011, for a fee in the region of €37 million. He went on to score 72 goals in 189 appearances across all competitions for the Citizens before securing a move to AS Roma in 2016. Having bagged seven goals in 17 Serie A appearances this season, the Bosnian international hasn’t lost his eye for goal.

Besides, he has managed to put up some impressive numbers on the board this term – averaging 2.2 shots, 0.8 key passes, and 0.7 long balls per ninety minutes in the Italian top flight. Given the 36-year-old’s style of play, he would be the ideal target man that ten Hag has been searching for over the past few months.

Cristiano Ronaldo’s untimely departure has left Manchester United in a tight situation as they are looking to recruit a striker in January. The Red Devils are in dire need of reinforcements in the striker’s department – and Dzeko fits the bill perfectly. Aged 36, he can be the ideal short-term solution to ten Hag’s needs upfront. Hence, the board should go all out for his signature in the upcoming transfer window.
