Wolfsburg boss Steve McClaren is interested in Manchester City defender Micah Richards.
Local newspapers reported that Dzeko, 24, has a clause in his contract which would allow him to leave for £35m – but it only runs until the end of the month.
That means the Germans are trying to drum up interest in their striker in order to cash in on him before midnight on Monday.
But while City are keeping tabs on him, they are unwilling to smash the British transfer record to sign him and are ready to bide their time.
McClaren may be tempted to do business later in the summer as he is a fan of his former England defender Richards, who could be part of a deal.
