    Former Manchester City striker Edin Dzeko open to Premier League return

    Joe Jones

    Roma striker Edin Dzeko has left himself open to a Premier League return but admits it might be too late given his age.

    The ex-Manchester City forward was on the verge of joining Chelsea in a double-deal with Emerson Palmieri in January.

    However, the deal collapsed late on and the Blues signed Olivier Giroud instead.

    The 32-year-old scored 72 goals in 189 appearances across five seasons with City, winning two Premier League titles between 2011 and 2015.

    Dzeko has scored 78 goals in all competitions since joining Roma and he remains "happy" as first-choice up-front, scoring twice in seven starts in Serie A so far this season.

    "Regarding the Premier League, maybe it's too late," he told Sky Sports. "You never know.

    "I had four-and-a-half great years there, and had fun every minute of every game. I love the Premier League and England, so we'll see. At the moment I'm happy in Rome."
