Southampton, Crystal Palace and Cardiff have been alerted to Edin Dzeko’s willingness to return to the Premier League.

The ex-Manchester City striker, 32 is currently at Roma. Dzeko spent five seasons at Manchester City, winning two Premier League titles and scoring 72 goals.

Southampton, Palace and Cardiff have all been struggling to score goals this season and see the Bosnian as a remedy to their offensive issues.

Dzeko said: “It’s probably too late for me to return to the Premier League, but you never know: we’ll see.

“I love English football, I played in the Premier League for four-and-a-half years and enjoyed it a lot, even if I’m happy at Roma right now.”

Dzeko netted twice for his international side as Bosnia and Herzegovina beat Northern Ireland 2-0.

He turned down a move to Chelsea in January.

"It wasn't easy, but I stayed here and am very happy to be here. I think the club is glad too," he told Mediaset Premium earlier this year.

"Let's not talk about it. Money doesn't matter."
