The Manchester City forward will be allowed to leave the club with a move in winter already mooted but should the Gunners aim to sign the Bosnian to compete with Giroud?
Arsenal are flying high domestically and on the continent but critics have suggested Sunday's loss to Manchester United bore the signs of fatigue, not least in the case of Olivier Giroud, who has started 18 of the Gunners' 19 matches this season.
The Frenchman has impressed, returning eight goals and five assists for Arsene Wenger's side but with an out of sorts Nicklas Bendtner his only competition up front, Arsene Wenger will be encouraged to bring in a new forward in January.
Manchester City are not expected to offer 27-year-old Edin Dzeko a new contract and are prepared to listen to offers for the Bosnia international - and Arsenal are heavily linked with a move this winter.
So with Arsenal's challenge for trophies looking stronger than ever, do you think Wenger should make a move for Dzeko in January, or is he not the quality of forward the Gunners require?
