Wolves have been linked with a move for Inter striker Edin Dzeko recently and the Bosnian could be Bruno Lage’s own version of Tottenham Hotspur star Harry Kane at Molineux.
Reports from Italy have suggested that Wolves are one of several sides interested in the former Manchester City man this summer, with the 36-year-old seemingly available despite a strong debut season with the Serie A side.
Do you want Dzeko at Wolves?
The veteran forward contributed an impressive 17 goals and ten assists in 48 appearances, following his move from Roma last summer, which emphasises that he was a key part of Simone Inzaghi’s squad at the San Siro.
Therefore, he could definitely offer Wolves some real quality in attack next season, which Lage will be crying out for after several lacklustre performances last term.
If he were to make the move to Molineux, he could perform a similar role to Kane for the Old Gold. According to FbRef, the England captain is the most similar player to Dzeko in terms of style of play.
According to WhoScored, both Kane and Dzeko excel at aerial duels and finishing, while they also like to drop deep and spread the play via long balls.
If Dzeko were to perform at even half of the level of Kane, given his incredible performances for Spurs in recent seasons, then he would surely be a worthwhile addition.
Roberto Mancini was full of praise for Dzeko back in 2015, saying:
“We’ll have to pay attention to Edin, because he’s one of the best in the world. He’ll score at least 15 goals though, because he has incredible quality.”
Even seven years on, the Bosnia and Herzegovina international is still finding the back of the net on a regular basis, and his record suggests that he would have no trouble re-adjusting to the Premier League.
Therefore, Jeff Shi should definitely try and bring Dzeko to Molineux this summer.
