Edin Dzeko began his professional career in his native Bosnia for Zeljeznicar in 2003, aged 17. Initially a midfielder, he wouldn't find success until becoming a striker after his move to the Czech Republic club Teplice in 2005, where his exploits of 13 goals in 30 matches in 2006-2007 made him the top scorer in the country, and earning the attention of Wolfsburg manager Felix Magath. Dzeko currently plays on loan for Serie A outfit Roma from parent club Manchester City of whom signed the player in 2011 where he scored over 50 league goals for the English club.
Magath signed Dzekoo for 4 million euros in 2007, where he made an instant impact in Germany, wearing the number nine shirt. Wolfsburg finished fifth in 2007-2008, and then won the Bundesliga for the first time in 2008-2009, with Dzeko's 26 goals a major contribution. Dzeko scored 85 times for Wolfsburg in his three and a half years in Germany.
Edin then moved to join Roberto Mancini's revolution at Manchester City in England in January, 2011. He signed for £27 million and was given the number 10 shirt, but his impact was limited in his first season, scoring four times. He was a contributor in getting Man City to the FA Cup final, which they won. Although providing City with important goals in vital games and moments, Dzeko didn't receive as many starts as desired so was sent on loan to Italian club Roma.
Edin also made his international debut in 2007 for Bosnia. He came off the bench to score against Turkey on debut, and has continued to thrive on the international scene since then - including nine goals in Bosnia's 2010 World Cup qualifying campaign. Džeko is one of the top strikers in Europe, and is a phenomenal talent now reaching his peak years.
