The Italian giants will go on a spending spree ahead of next season and have put the Manchester City star on their wanted list.

Inter have millions to spend following the recent takeover by Indonesian businessman Erick Thohir.

Thohir has financed the deal that will see Manchester United captain Nemanja Vidic join Inter at the start of next season.

Now the Serie A outfit have targeted Dzeko as they look to sign a proven goalscorer and re-establish themselves among Europe's elite.

Inter have also targeted Fernando Torres but the Chelsea striker's £150,000-a-week wages could prove too high for them.

Dzeko remains a more viable option and will be entering he final 12 months of his contract at the end of this season.

The Bosnian hitman, a £27m signing from Wolfsburg in January 2011, is a long-standing target of Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger.
