Who is Edin Dzecko you ask? Unless you’ve been living in a bubble you would have noticed that he is a dominant character in the German Bundesliga. He and Brazilian striker Grafite have proved more than a handful for defenders worldwide. He’s established himself as a striker for VFL Wolfsburg and he recently broke Wolfburg’s goal scoring record. His strengths are most definitely centered around his aerial prowess and his positioning is very good. Although, what he does need to improve on his temperament issues, as Wayne Rooney once had to issue.

He’s been linked to clubs such as Chelsea, Tottenham, big spenders Manchester City and most recently Real Madrid but he has signed a deal extending his stay at the German champions until 2013 however a big move is still on the cards. A move could be made for him this coming transfer window with Manchester City very interested in his services and he would be an ideal replacement for the furious Tevez.  It was reported today that Dzecko had contacted City himself in a plea to move to Eastlands in the January transfer window. The guardian reported that he sent a hand-written letter to Eastland’s officials appealing to them to make a bid. He would arrive as either a replacement or partner for City talisman Carlos Tevez.

 Personally, I don’t think he’d find a starting place at Chelsea and he wouldn’t be needed at White Hart Line extending the on going strikers list to 6 with Peter Crouch, Jermaine Defoe & Pavuylchenko currently challenging for starting places.

Dzecko has scored 8 goals in 15 appearances this season for Wolfsburg. Between him and the explosive Grafite they have formed the best partnership arguably to have ever existed in the German Bundesliga. In his 3 years at VFL Wolfsburg he has scored 59 goals in 96 appearances, surpassing the previous record holder Diego Klimowicz who had netted 57 in 146.
