Arsène Wenger is impressed by Wolfsburg striker Edin Dzeko but is unlikely to move for him in the January transfer window.

The Bosnian is one of the hottest properties in European football right now and helped his side to their first Bundesliga title last season.

An impressive 40 goals in 74 appearances has led the 23-year-old to be linked with any number of big clubs, Arsenal included. However Wenger believes Dzeko would cost too much money.

“I like the player,” he admitted at Friday’s press conference. “But they fly too high right now – price-wise.”
