AS Roma striker Edin Dzeko has dismissed recent rumors that have suggested he will leave Italy’s capital at the end of the season
Arrived from Manchester City back in 2015, the Bosnia and Herzegovina international has established himself as an indispensable first-team member at the Giallorossi, also becoming one of the most prolific goalscorers in Serie A.
Dzeko’s contract with La Lupa is due to expire in 2020, but recent reports have indicated he may leave the club in the summer following another Roma’s underwhelming season.
Although the 33-year-old has not enjoyed a good season by his standards, bagging just 13 goals in 37 top-flight appearances for Roma, he seems eager to remain at the Stadio Olimpico.
“Positive? Yes, but I didn’t win anything. It’s a bit strange when you make history, and we don’t have to win. We should have done better in four years to win something.
“This year we should have done more in the Italian Cup as Juventus was stronger in the league. We didn’t succeed, and I’m the first to be disappointed.
“I always say that I am happy here and in Rome, my family feels good. Rome will always remain important to me even when I finish with football.”
Inter Milan are said to be interested in acquiring Dzeko’s services in the summer, especially after everything that has happened to Mauro Icardi this year.
But, judging on Dzeko’s words, the Nerazzurri will have to exploit other options to find a suitable replacement for their out-of-favor star.
