Despite Italy interest, Dzeko and Jovetic make Australia trip with Man City

Edin Dzeko and Stevan Jovetic were included in the Manchester City squad for their trip to Australia, despite intense speculation surrounding their futures.

Bosnian striker Dzeko and Montenegrin forward Jovetic have reportedly been deemed surplus to requirements by City and the duo are widely expected to leave the Etihad Stadium this summer, with a move to Italy being touted for both players.

Despite the intense speculation surrounding the futures of Dzeko and Jovetic though, the two strikers have been included in the City squad for their upcoming pre-season tour of Australia which kicks off against sister club Melbourne City on the Gold Coast on Saturday.

Roma, who are also in Australia and coincidentally take on City in Melbourne next week, are determined to land Dzeko while Jovetic is believed to be keen on a move to Inter Milan.
