Manchester City remain favourites for Wolfsburg striker Eden Dzeko.

The Daily Mail says City have made a play for Wolfsburg's Dzeko and were alarmed at the German club's £50m demands.

Juventus and Bayern Munich have made counter-offers but the Bosnia international is keen on City and has asked to go. The problem for Dzeko is that fiercely proud Wolfsburg would have to back down.

Despite City's spending power, illustrated in their willingness to give David Silva and Yaya Toure £160,000 a week in wages, the club do not want to pay over the odds.
