- Dortmund 'to think about Dzeko'

The Bosnian striker is a reported target for Borussia Dortmund if Robert Lewandowski leaves the Champions League finalists and has grown frustrated at his inability to hold down a regular place in the City side.

“We will see,” the forward said when asked if he will be leaving the Etihad Stadium in the summer. “Everything is open.”

Dzeko, a £27 million signing from Wolfsburg in January 2011, was also non-committal when asked if he wants to stay

He is City’s top scorer in the Premier League this season but his 13 goals have come in only 15 starts and he is unsure if Tuesday’s goal in the 1-0 win against West Bromwich Albion will earn him a place in the team for Saturday’s FA Cup final against Wigan.

“I don’t know,” he added. “Everyone is hoping. Everyone wants to play.”

Dzeko has proved prolific as a replacement in the last two seasons and could be on the bench again at Wembley.

“That’s my job, to score goals, if I come on after 60 minutes or if I start,” he explained.
