Borussia Dortmund general manager Hans-Joachim Watzke has dismissed suggestions that the club is set to sign Edin Dzeko from Manchester City.

There have been reports that the German champions were showing considerable interest in the unsettled Bosnian striker but Watzke has played that notion down.
