Dzeko told sport.ba: "I wouldn't be surprised if Pjanic came to City, and I sincerely hope he does.
"If Mire came to City then I would certainly not want to leave the Etihad.
"I sincerely hope that Pjanic will join City. I have recommended Pjanic before to Manchester City - they know all about him.
