A number of reports have surfaced over the last 48 hours that Arsenal are preparing a £20m bid for Dzeko in January.
Gunners boss Arsene Wenger is a confirmed admirer of the striker, having spoken about his talents when we first signed him.
Arsenal actually spoke with City more than 12 months ago about taking Edin on loan but were met with a flat refusal.
Whist City are not confirming one way or the other if the player is even up for sale, there is clear thinking he would not be sold to anybody else in this country.
And certainly not to a direct rival who currently sit top of the Premier League.
Dortmund are still the only show in town as things stand.
