Atletico Madrid have been linked with Edin Dzeko and Manchester City will reportedly accept a cut-price offer for the striker.
New boss Manuel Pellegrini is keen to offload the Bosnian as he doesn't see Dzeko as part of his first-team plans.
City are reportedly willing to accept a significant loss on Dzeko, having paid £27million for the striker in 2011, although no potential fee has been suggested as yet.
Pellegrini is keen to make space in his squad for targets Pablo Osvaldo, of Roma, and Sevilla's Spain international Alvaro Negredo.
Dzeko has previously indicated he would be keen on a return to the Bundesliga but the chance to play Champions League football for Atletico could convince him to move to Spain.
