Manchester City are ready to listen to offers for Edin Dzeko.

The Sunday Mirror says Dzeko is set to be ­offered the chance to ­follow Mario Balotelli out of ­Manchester City by ­Borussia Dortmund.

Dortmund are ­prepared to give 26-year-old Dzeko the chance to return to Germany, where he was a big hit with ­Wolfsburg.

Dortmund expect to lose star striker Robert ­Lewandowski at the end of the season and are already lining up high-profile ­potential replacements.

Sources in Germany claim Dzeko is at the top of boss Jurgen Klopp's list, even though he will have to take a heavy cut to his £120,000-a-week wages.

Arsenal have also shown an interest in Dzeko, but it would suit the Blues to sell him abroad rather than let the Bosnia international join a Premier League rival.
