Despite several months of exit speculation, the Bosnia striker has re-emphasised his happiness in his current surroundings in the Italian capital

Roma forward Edin Dzeko has reiterated his commitment to the club following months of rumours around his future.

The 32-year-old Bosnia-Herzegovina international has spent three fruitful seasons in the Italian capital, scoring 73 goals in 139 appearances since his move from Manchester City.

After strong rumours of a return to the Premier League during the January transfer window Dzeko chose to stay, with the Giallorossi coming third in Serie A and reaching the Champions League semi-finals.

The latest speculation has suggested that he is now a target for AC Milan and clubs in the Chinese Super League, with a summer switch being mooted.

Speaking to Roma TV, Dzeko said on his future: "I feel very good here.

''This was part of the reason I stayed in January, when what happened, happened. But I have a wife, I have kids, and at the moment all of them are very happy here.

"Even if we did not win anything last season, I think we had a great campaign – especially in the Champions League – and hopefully we can do something even better this season."

Roma have had a summer of upheaval so far, losing stalwart Radja Nainggolan to Inter Milan, while goalkeeper Alisson is expected to leave for Liverpool for a world record £67 million ($86m) fee.

The club has also spent over €50m (£45m/$58m) on Javier Pastore from Paris Saint-Germain, Justin Kluivert from Ajax, Davide Santon from Inter and Ante Coric from Dinamo Zagreb.
