Dzeko scored in the 43rd and 48th minutes of Manchester City's 3-2 win over Everton on Saturday at Goodison Park.

Dzeko has now scored 14 goals in 29 Premier League appearances, and he'll likely continue to be a focal point of the attack after Sergio Aguero was forced from Saturday's match with a groin injury.

Dzeko scored in the fourth minute of Manchester City's 2-0 win at Crystal Palace on Sunday.

Dzeko took a gorgeous pass from Yaya Toure and headed it into the back of the net for his 22nd goal in all competitions this season. 12 of those goals have come in Premier League play, including four in his last eight appearances. City still have three fixtures remaining, at Everton next weekend, following by home matches against Aston Villa and West Ham.

Dzeko scored two goals during Manchester City's 3-0 win over Manchester United at Old Trafford on Tuesday.

Dzeko's first score came less than 45 seconds into the match, with his other coming after halftime. After missing last weekend's match due to illness, Dzeko was able to become the 13th player to reach double-digit goals in the Premier League this season. He appears to be Manuel Pellegrini's top choice at striker, ahead of Alvaro Negredo, although the lineup could change with Sergio Aguero (hamstring) due back soon.

Dzeko was held out of Saturday's Premier League match against Fulham due to illness, ESPN FC reports.

It's unclear how serious the illness is, but it wouldn't be surprising if he was held out of the starting XI for Tuesday's Manchester derby.

Dzeko scored in the 90th minute of Manchester City's 2-0 win over Hull City on Saturday.

Dzeko got the start as City's lone striker Saturday, with Alvaro Negredo staying on the bench, and Sergio Aguero (hamstring) and Stevan Jovetic (hamstring) both out injured. The goal was his eighth in Premier League play and first since he scored against Tottenham on January 29. If there is one thing Dzeko doesn't do, it's record assists, as he has just one this season, which he got back in gameweek 1. Nevertheless, the goal Saturday could be the start of something, and he has two matches in gameweek 31: home against Fulham and away at Manchester United.

Manchester City have told Dzeko that he is free to leave this summer, reports.

With Alvaro Negredo and Sergio Aguero getting most of the starts, and Stevan Jovetic available off the bench, Dzeko may find more first team opportunities elsewhere. He has drawn some interest from a number of Serie A clubs, with Inter Milan the current leader.

Inter Milan are reportedly preparing a summer transfer move to bring Dzeko to Italy, according to the MIrror.

Dzeko's current contract expires in 2015, and Inter believe they may be able to convince Manchester City to sell this summer. Dzeko does not hold a permanent starting spot in the current squad, and could be deemed surplus for the right price.
