As Manchester City embark on their £150 million summer spending spree which will also include several of manager Manuel Pellegrini’s more senior players leaving the club, Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is looking to take advantage of the situation by launching a cheeky £15 million bid for City’s Bosnian international striker Edin Dzeko.



Dzeko has struggled to get playing time at the Etihad, due in part to the teams star-studded bench, yet is a known goal-scorer of the quality Arsenal needs to provide competition for Olivier Giroud as they hope to compete with City, United and Chelsea for next season’s title.



The problem Wenger may face in what we think would be an excellent player for the Gunners is his £15 million bid, which is £5 million short of what City wants to get after having spent £27 million to sign him from Wolfsburg in 2011, according to the Sun.



With Jackson Martinez apparently on his way to AC Milan we feel that Arsene Wenger should up his offer to closer to what City is asking before Liverpool negotiate a player and cash deal for Raheem Sterling that would involve the 29-year-old moving to Anfield rather than the Emirates, and with City already offering £40 million for Sterling a deal is there to be had if they bring Dzeko into the equation.
