Anzhi are preparing a bid for Manchester City striker Edin Dzeko.

The mega spending Russians see Dzeko as an ideal attacking foil for Samuel Eto'o.

Dzeko's agent has invited Juventus to make them an offer in the last 24 hours and now Anzhi are joining the battle for the Bosnia international.

City will welcome an auction as they seek to balance their transfer spending in preparation for Michel Platini's UEFA finance laws.
