Manchester City are ready to sell Edin Dzeko this summer.

The Sunday Mirror says this is despite an ­impressive ­strike-rate of 24 goals in 56 appearances since arriving from Wolfsburg just 14 months ago. Dzeko himself is unhappy that he has been unable to secure a regular start in ­Roberto Mancini's team this season, with 11 of his 35 ­appearances coming as a substitute.

That has alerted a number of clubs to his possible ­availability in the summer - with Inter Milan following Juventus in registering an interest in the 25-year-old. And unless performances improve, City are likely to welcome his departure if they can recoup most of the cash they paid Wolfsburg.
