Borussia Dortmund chief Hans-Joachim Watzke has dismissed talk of a move for Manchester City striker Edin Dzeko.

Dzeko has been linked with Dortmund as a replacement for Robert Lewandowski.

But Watzke insists: "Sure, (Gonzalo) Higuaín and (Karim) Benzema also. No, we can not believe, in all seriousness, to get such a centre forward who plays for Manchester City, United or Real Madrid.

"Players in this category sometimes demand even €12 million in wages. This is not our world. "
