Real Madrid and Barcelona linked with shock move for AS Roma star Edin Dzeko

La Liga giants Barcelona and Real Madrid are rumoured to be considering a shock move for AS Roma striker Edin Dzeko.

The Bosnian international was heavily linked with an exit from the Italian capital at the the start of the 2020/21 season.

However, a move away from the Stadio Olimpico failed to materialise and relations between the club and Dzeko have  worsened as a result.

The former Manchester City star has still remained an important squad option for the Serie A side, with seven league goals in 15 league appearances.

But he is still rumoured to be unhappy with his situation in Italy and wants to leave the club before the winter transfer window closes in the coming days.

According to reports from Mundo Deportivo, both Real Madrid and Barcelona are monitoring the situation and could make a cut price offer if the opportunity arises.

Both sides have been heavily reliant on one player so far this season, with Karim Benzema and Lionel Messi the only stars from either side to score over 10 La Liga goals in 2020/21.
