AS Roma reject move from Tottenham for Edin Dzeko
Tottenham’s move to sign Edin Dzeko has been rejected by AS Roma, according to Corriere dello Sport (h/t Calciomercato).
The two-time Premier League winner left Manchester City for Roma close to three years ago. Dzeko has been one of the top performers for the Serie A giants and has eight goals and two assists for them this season.
The Englishman has been in great touch under Jose Mourinho, but we don’t have senior cover for the striker.
Troy Parrott could get some minutes if Kane needs a break while Son Heung-min and Lucas Moura cal also lead the line.
Roma have no intention of selling Dzeko
The Bosnian has scored 95 goals for Roma and they have said that the striker is not for sale (h/t Calciomercato).
Tottenham could do with another striker coming in with us allowing two senior forwards to leave in the previous summer.
Mourinho could do with more players coming in the January window, and it will be interesting to see what his plans are.
Spurs have been better under him than Mauricio Pochettino, however, we are far from the final product.
