A host of clubs, including Juve, were trying to sign Dzeko this summer, but Wolfsburg were adamant that they would not be selling the Bosnia international ahead of the 2010-11 campaign.

"Dzeko is one of the strongest players in Europe,'' said Marotta. "He makes a difference. We wanted him and we did everything we could within our possibilities to acquire him in the summer transfer market. However, Wolfsburg put up a wall.

"Unfortunately, [Wolfsburg general manager Dieter] Hoeness was firm on his decision [not to sell the player]. We will try again but something tells me that in the future the Bosnian will end up playing at Bayern Munich.''
