Arsenal are linked with a January bid for Manchester City's unsettled striker Edin Dzeko.

Arsenal are allegedly weighing up a potential January bid for Manchester City striker Edin Dzeko.

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger sees the Bosnian as the ideal candidate to ease the burden on lone frontman Olivier Giroud, according to The Mirror.

Dzeko is said to be frustrated at the lack of first-team opportunities at City, and is eager for game time head of his country's World Cup debut next summer.

Arsenal are expected to face competition for Dzeko's signature from Italian outfit Inter Milan.
