The striker became the highest league scorer in Wolfsburg's history, netting 66 goals in 111 Bundesliga matches.

He scored 26 goals during City's second title-winning season of 2013-14 and was also a League Cup winner as City beat Sunderland 3-1 at Wembley. Dzeko played for Bosnia-Hercegovina at the World Cup in Brazil in the summer, scoring against Iran.

Dzeko added that there are still so many objectives and goals that he wants to reach from his career in the game and believes that he is in the perfect place to achieve them all.
