Dzeko has been a bit part player for City this season as Roberto Mancini’s side have failed to deliver the form that saw them lift the Premier League title last season.
The 27 year old striker looked set to leave the Premier League in the summer but the signing of Pjanic would be enough to keep him on at the Eihad.
Pjanic has been in impressive form for Roma this season in Serie A and a number of big European clubs are said to be interested in the 23-year-old playmaker including City.
There is no doubt that Mancini will be keen to strengthen his squad in the summer after falling so far behind Manchester United this season and the addition of Pjanic would be a statement of intent.
“I wouldn’t be surprised if Pjanic came to City, and I sincerely hope he does” Dzeko told sport.ba:
“If Mire came to City then I would certainly not want to leave the Etihad.
“I sincerely hope that Pjanic will join City. I have recommended Pjanic before to Manchester City – they know all about him.
“On one occasion the manager Roberto Mancini asked me whether Pjanic was Bosnian. I said, ‘Of course, he’s Bosnian!'”
