Edin Dzeko insists he wants to stay and fight for his place at Manchester City, despite reports linking the club with a move for Atletico Madrid’s Radamel Falcao.

The 26-year-old has scored three Premier League goals in just two starts for the defending champions this season, earning the Bosnia international City’s Player of the Month award.

However, the Citizens are being linked with Atletico’s prolific striker Falcao, meaning Dzeko’s future at the Eastlands outfit once again being debated.

“Every time I see a paper, for what seems like a year or more there is a story saying that I am leaving City, or that I want to go,” Dzeko told the Sun.

“But I’ve never said that so the stories don’t come from me. I’ve always wanted to stay at City and fight for my place.

“My motto has always been ‘Never give up’.

“I hope the City fans who have always been fantastic towards me have seen I can score important goals for the team and that’s what I want to carry on
doing.”

He added: “There is myself and three fantastic strikers so obviously we can’t all play at the same time. So sometimes it can be difficult to find your rhythm.

“You could play one game and then be on the bench for the next three. I think confidence is the key to playing at your best, of course. Plus, the more games you play, the more goals you are likely to score.

“But, as I say, with many good strikers at the club that’s how it’s going to be.

“As a player you accept that and just try your best each time you play. That’s what I do and will continue to do.”
