Wenger ready to break Arsenal transfer record for Dzeko

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is chasing Wolfsburg striker Edin Dzeko.

The Sun says Wenger wants £15million-rated Wolfsburg striker Edin Dzeko to save Arsenal's season.

The Gunners' boss is ready to smash their transfer record to sign the powerful Bosnia international next month.

And he is praying bitter rivals Manchester United can do him a favour by dumping the German club out of the Champions League next week.

Wenger has vowed to splash out on a proven goal-poacher, after top-scorer Robin van Persie was ruled out for four months by ankle trouble.

And Dzeko, 23, has shot to the top of his wanted-list, having blasted rank outsiders Wolfsburg to the German championship against the odds last season with 36 goals.

He has hit another 13 in the current campaign.
