Charlie Nicholas would have loved to have seen Edin Dzeko play for Arsenal
Nicholas was speaking ahead of Roma’s Champions League last-16 second-leg clash against Shakhtar Donetsk last night.
He said he has always been a fan of Roma star Dzeko and believes Arsenal should have bought him years ago.
“I love Dzeko,” Nicholas told Sky Sports.
“I always thought Arsenal should have got him.”

Roma went into last night’s second leg 2-1 down from the first leg in Ukraine.
Nicholas predicted a 1-0 win for the Serie A side with Dzeko scoring the only goal.
The Scot got his prediction spot on as Dzeko’s 52nd minute goal was enough to see Eusebio Di Francesco’s side through to the quarter-finals.

After a loan spell, Dzeko joined Roma permanently from Manchester City for £10million in 2016.
The Bosnia and Herzegovina international scored 50 Premier League goals in 130 appearances for City.
The 31-year-old was part of the City side that won the title in 2012 and 2014.
