Manchester City has added another attacking option to its already loaded squad by completing the signing of Bosnia striker Edin Dzeko from Wolfsburg on a 4 1/2-year deal.
Dzeko had been linked with a move to the Premier League club for weeks and City confirmed the deal on its website Friday.
He joins a team that sits second in the standings and has no shortage of forwards. However, the club is reportedly looking to offload Emmanuel Adebayor and Roque Santa Cruz in the January transfer window, which could free up a space for Dzeko alongside Carlos Tevez up front.
City did not disclose financial details of the transfer.
Dzeko said "City are playing for first place in the Premier League and that is what I want."
