Tottenham considering move for Manchester City ace

City's Edin DzekoTottenham are lining up Manchester City striker Edin Dzeko as an alternative to number one target Roberto Soldado, according to reports from The Mirror.

Spurs have been tracking the Valencia hit-man for some time, but their latest offer of £22.5m falls some way short of his buyout clause.

Although the Spaniards are in a state of financial turmoil, they are only willing to let their star man leave if a figure of £26m is put on the table – which would take the decision out of their hands.

If negotiations break down, Andre Villas-Boas will switch his attention to Dzeko, who faces an uncertain future at the Etihad Stadium.

The Bosnian has struggled for first-team football since his move to the club from Wolfsburg in 2011, and faces a battle with Sergio Aguero and new signing Alvaro Negredo for a starting berth under new chief Manuel Pellegrini.

AVB is hopeful that he can convince him to swap Manchester for London – despite Spurs’ lack of Champions League football – with the promise of regular game time.

The 27-year-old may be tempted, with a guaranteed spot in Bosnia and Herzegovina’s squad ahead of the 2014 World Cup thought to be high on his list of priorities.

Tottenham fans, would Edin Dzeko be a better option than Roberto Soldado?
