Dzeko-Higuaín swap would be good business for City

So according to reports Edin Dzeko is going to be on the way out of Manchester City at the end of the season – and not before time following his dismal form.

With the wealth of talent City have at their disposal, both at the club at present and potentially in the future given their unlimited cash, the Bosnian is on borrowed time.

The calibre of the clubs interested in securing his services clearly shows the undoubted talents of the 26-year-old, with Juventus and Real Madrid reportedly in the market.

But Dzeko just hasn’t produced the goods, or had the chance to do so of late, in the Premier League.

If Madrid come in apparently Roberto Mancini is a big admirer of Gonzalo Higuaín and he could come to Eastlands in exchange for City’s misfiring striker.

It could be a clever bit of business for the Etihad outfit.

Can Jol convince Fulham stars to stay?

Fulham’s sudden goal shyness could ruin their chances of returning to Europe next season as the vultures circle for the club’s star players.

Martin Jol’s men inked in three straight victories to flirt with a top-10 finish in February and March, the highlight being a 5-0 thrashing of the seemingly doomed Wolverhampton Wanderers.

But since then the Cottagers have suffered three straight defeats, failing to find the net in each games as their season looks to stutter to a halt a month early.

And things could get worse, with Jol admitting that the likes of Brede Hangeland, Clint Dempsey and Moussa Dembélé could be on their way out of Craven Cottage in the summer.

These three have attracted interest from some big Premier League clubs and all will have desires to test themselves on a bigger stage.

For many, it is a surprise Fulham have kept hold of the likes of Dempsey and Hangeland for this long, but with Jol bringing a new exciting brand of attacking football to the Cottage, the club’s supporters will be hoping to keep hold of them and push for a return to Europe next season.
