Man City to include Dzeko in offer for Arsenal rebel Van Persie

Manchester City are prepared to include Edin Dzeko in their bid for Arsenal contract rebel Robin van Persie.

The Sun says they are ready to make a £15m initial offer, though last season’s 37-goal ace is still likely to be an Arsenal player when the two teams meet in a Beijing friendly on July 27.

City, who do not want to pay more than £20m, are also willing to offer striker Edin Dzeko in a player-plus-cash deal.

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger has always been a big Dzeko fan but would recoil at his £130,000-a-week pay demands.

City are also hoping either AC Milan or Bayern Munich will make a move.
