The summer transfer window is still a few months away, but that doesn't mean that the rumor mill isn't churning with factual (or made up) rumors.

One particular rumor from England involves a Manchester City player. No, not James Milner (we got that covered here), it's Edin Džeko.

The 29-year old has been linked with a move away from the Etihad for some time, but this summer could be the time when it finally happen.

According to Daily Express, Džeko has attracted the interest of Inter Milan and AS Roma, who will set to battle it out for his signature in the offseason. A price tag in the region of £20 million has been suggested for the Bosnian.

Džeko's place in Manchester City is under threat with the signing of Wilfried Bony, which explains why he'd be open to a move elsewhere.

Both sides has a factor that might nudge the odds in their favor. Roma has Miralem Pjanic, a fellow Bosnian and a teammate in the national team.

Inter, on the other hand, has Roberto Mancini, with whom Džeko worked with during Mancini's time managing Manchester City.

Nerazzurri could be on the market for a striker this June, as they seek additional firepower beyond Mauro Icardi. Does Džeko fits the bill? Sound off in the comments below!
