West Ham offered chance to sign Edin Dzeko

West Ham United have been offered the chance to sign Edin Dzeko from AS Roma, report Sky Sports.

The Bosnia and Herzegovina international has yet to commit his future to the Serie A club.

What’s the word?

Dzeko’s current contract expires at the end of next season and he has yet to put pen to paper on an extension at the Italian club.

And Sky claim that the former Manchester City striker has now been offered to West Ham ahead of the summer transfer window.

The 33-year-old moved to Roma in 2015 from City and has scored 86 goals during his time at the club.

An experienced campaigner, Dzeko has won 101 caps for his country, scoring 55 goals.

Of course, he won two Premier League titles during his time with City, as well as the FA Cup and the League Cup.

The perfect player

West Ham need to snap Roma’s hand off here.

Dzeko is perfect for the Hammers. He’s old enough to be an experienced campaigner but he’s not yet past it, as his record for Roma shows.

The likes of Andy Carroll and Lucas Perez are nowhere near Dzeko’s level and he would add an extra dimension to Manuel Pellegrini’s attack.

A superb header of the ball, Dzeko is also adept at having the ball at his feet and has the ability to make a genuine difference to the club’s hopes next season.

This would be an excellent signing for the Irons and one they have no excuse not to complete.
