According to Gazzetta Dello Sport, the club has assured that the striker will recover from his injury before the crucial games.

Dzeko has tried his best to fill the void left by Lukaku. He is slightly different from the Belgian as he does not look to run towards opposition defense.

Dzeko has proved his critics wrong by scoring 8 goals and providing 3 assists for Inter Milan so far. Inter have signed Dzeko on a two-year contract and the Bosnian has been better than expected so far.
