In this generation there haven’t been many strikers as consistent as Edin Dzeko. He is the only striker ever to have 50+ league goals in three of top five leagues in Europe having scored 66 goals with Wolfsburg in the Bundesliga, 50 goals in the Premier league for Manchester City and 53 goals in Serie A with Roma. He has also won the golden boot twice becoming the Bundesliga’s top goal scorer in 2009-2010 and was the Serie A top goal scorer in 2016-2017 season. He has been a proven goal scorer through his career he’s a solid 20+ goal scorer. Not just his goals but as a player he has developed into a complete striker not only domestically but in the Europa league and the champions league as well. Even at the age of 32 he constantly scored in big games he has decreased in goals but still managed to score 24 goals last season proving to continually be one of the top 10 strikers in the world. He is extremely strong and physical player who plays the perfect role as the number 9. Everything you need in your striker with his 6’5 frame he is extremely dangerous in the air known how to perfectly direct his head on crossing coming into the box and set pieces coming off corners and free kicks. He often position himself in the right place to have the highest chance of score. He also is a very underrated dribbler passer and has very good ball control for a player his size. He has pretty good clinical ability as well but his complete set of skills offers more value than with clinical striker who scores loads of goals because of his ability to many things Dzeko takes a lot of touches inflicting his domaince on the game has great leadership’s skills he’s got in all. This package of skills has been influence in three titles in Germany and England. He won the Bundesliga with Wolfsburg which currently sound crazy but at the time that Wolfsburg team was amazing.

We are in the year of 2018 and  at this current time edin dzeko is statistically one of the best strikers Roma have ever had. When he calls it a career and I believe he will end his European career here in Rome he will be and the top 10 highest goal scorers in the history of Roma maybe even top 5. Edin dzeko has scored 73 goals and 139 games in three seasons. The Bosnian International is currently 11th and Roma’s all time scoring list number 10 on the list is Giuseppe Giovanni who only has two more goals then Dzeko in three times as many games. His goals to games ratio for this club is unbelievable and I believe by the time he finishes his career here he will be considered one of the best strikers Roma has ever had. Despite how great he has been for Roma it didn’t start off this well. Edin dzeko arrival from Manchester City on a loan in 2015 which now looks like one of the best deals in history only cost Roma 15 million. He was coming off winning two League titles in England with Manchester City having also won the league title in Germany with Wolfsburg. The idea was that his arrival was the player they needed to push Roma to the first league title since 2001. Edin dzeko had a bit of a shaky start to life in Serie A. Edin dzeko and Mohamed Salah both arrived that summer to give Roma a push. Edin dzeko had a really hard time in that first season under Rudi Garcia.

A very poor opening season for edin dzeko as he failed to live up to the expectations surrounding him when he arrived. He picked it up during the second half of the Season under Luciano Spalletti scored in the the Roman Derby twice but unfortunately finished the season with just 10 goals in all competitions as of Roma finished 3rd in the league. The Following season he exceed expectations that were laid upon him when he joined the team.

During the preseason Edin dzeko was sensational scoring 17 goals during the preseason despite the fact that it was against some pretty bad teams it gave Roma a reason to be hopeful that Dzeko could be a top player in this league. Having had success in England and in Germany the understanding was he would get it together and the same in Italy the ability and the potential was there because we’ve seen him do it the Premier league AND Bundesliga.

The next season Eusebio Di Francesco a former scudetto winner as Roma boss. In addition to that transfer wizard Monchi took over as a sporting director and Francesco Totti hung up his boots for the suit. This last season Edin Dzeko showed no signs of slowing down he didn’t quite reach the heights that he had reached the previous season but he still proved to be one of the best players in the world at his position.
