Edin Dzeko has urged reported Manchester City target Kevin De Bruyne to stay at Wolfsburg for another season.
The former Premier League champions have been linked with a move for the attacking midfielder, who is also thought to be on the radar of Paris Saint-Germain.
De Bruyne, 24, joined Wolfsburg from Chelsea at the start of 2014 for £18m. The Belgian international scored 10 goals last season, helping the team to win the DFB-Pokal.
Dzeko, who moved to City from Wolfsburg in 2011, believes that De Bruyne should remain with the Bundesliga club because his first-team chances could be limited at the Etihad Stadium.
"Through his time at Chelsea he knows the Premier League and knows that it's completely different," the striker told Kicker. "A lot of players who excelled in other leagues have had problems here - take Angel di Maria.
"I'm certain that [Kevin] has what it takes to play for one of the top clubs in Europe but he's also aware that at these clubs there are 20 top players who always want to be on the pitch. Maybe it would also help him if he plays in the Champions League with Wolfsburg this season and takes another step in his development there."
De Bruyne has scored seven goals in 30 appearances for Belgium.
