Edin Dzeko is a Bosnia & Herzegovina international football player who currently features for the English Premier League club Manchester City. He plays as a striker and is rated as one of the best in Europe.
Dzeko commenced his professional club football career at Bosnian club FK Zeljeznicar and played for them between 2003 and 2005, scoring 5 goals in 40 league matches. In 2006 Dzeko moved to FC Teplice and played for them until 2007, scoring 16 goals in 43 league appearances.
In 2007 Dzeko was signed by German side VfL Wolfsburg for 4 million euros and immediately settled in. He was a huge star for Wolfsburg in the 2008-2009 season in which he scored an amazing 26 goals in 32 league matches with 10 assists in the German Bundesliga and played a huge role in Wolfsburg’s first ever German championship.
Dzeko continued to impress for Wolfsburg and became a well-known striker. In January 2011 he was signed by Manchester City for a transfer fee of 32 million euros. However, he struggled to adapt to the Premier League in the second half of the 2010-11 campaign, but was crucial for the Citizens in their league triumph in 2011-12.
Dzeko made his international debut for Bosnia & Herzegovina against Turkey on June 2, 2007 and scored too. He is now a regular for the Bosnian national football team and has played in over 45 matches.
