Lukaku was struggling physically with English defenders and imagine Dzeko against them.

Dzeko vs Kyle Walker.

God help us.

Not that I like Dzeko but...we cannot afford replacing the whole attack but one. The new guys will need time to get used to Serie A and if they don't sync, teams double mark Lautaro and we gonna lose a lot of points.

Correa must leave because he offers nothing. Lukaku is too expensive, even under discount, as Chelsea paid too much for him. Dzeko is overpaid too but it is still only a fraction of the Belgium.

Only one year though. Next year we could find a replacement when the newcomer this year fully adapts.

Correa isn't leaving unless we magically include him in a deal for another player.

So that leaves us with Lautaro + Correa. Lautaro might leave for an insane offer from the EPL.

While Dzeko would cost less than Lukaku...... Lukaku is way better and makes Lautaro a much better player. Not saying buy Lukaku but if we can get a Lukaku loan go that route. Tho rumor is Arsenal wants him.

Or get a very good CF to replace Dzeko, Correa and Lukaku + promote 3 of the guys we have on loan and hope for the best.

I think he's gotta go, as much as I've appreciated him. You can't expect to start every game at 37yo, and especially can't get upset when you get subbed off for someone 7 years younger and in good form.

Especially for 5m a goddamn year.

Are we all not overreacting a bit to Dzeko being pissed at the sub?
Quite a normal reaction for players and if it was only in the moment then i really dont see the problem

With that logic bring back Ronaldo fenomeno and start him in the final. Also lol at saying Dzeko is a better finisher than Lukaku 😂😂😂😂

Mmm, I've seen it happen often enough. I think this is also an area for improvement for Inzaghi - letting seniority and needing to 'appease' certain squad members (Handa, Dzeko, for example) decide line-ups over ability and form is not great.

But that's just my reading of the situation, I could easily be wrong.

Comparing their careers, I would say as a finisher Džeko does seem better than Lukaku. Those Wolfsburg and City years he was a cheat code. Dude didn't even play a lot for City, but he delivered.

Also at Roma, I think he scored more than 100 goals

I'm not even sure Lukaku will have the longevity to score as many goals as Džeko did in his career.

Don't have one.
I don't have problems with saying goodbye to dzeko but for me getting rid of correa who btw i m just reading got injured again, is an absolute top priority in the upcoming mercato and I don't think we have resources to replace them both properly at the same time.

So first launch correa into the stratosphere for all I care, and then we can start thinking about dzeko.

The problem is that Correa still has 2 years of contract left. He has no problem with sitting on the bench and waiting till his contract expires. Nobody will pay for him now, and our best chance to get rid of him is to loan him out.
While at the other hand, Džeko is not even close to the player that he was 3 years ago, not to mention prime Džeko, while he asks for almost the same salary. Giving a 5M to Edin would be a huge mistake. But I can understand our mngmt, if there is no money for one more year of Lukaku, we have to keep Džeko. And find another cheap replacement for Lukaku.

Džeko knows that nobody else would give him a 3M, but is aware of Inter situation with strikers and is looking to get as much as possible from it.

Their careers are uncomparable. You can compare Dzeko with Ibra, not with Lukaku. Dzeko is way ahead of Lukaku. Only ignorants or Conte asslickers see otherwise. But right now Dzeko is old and wasted, Limone should more start Lukaku who regained his form.

There’s an argument for who the better player in their prime is sure. As a finisher….lol come on.
Dzeko Career: 862 matches 387 goals . Lukaku career: 703 matches 359 goals

The answer is simple. Dzeko was already wasted and bigger cost at 37th years old, meanwhile correa has lower cost and more younger at 29th years old and enjoying his time on the bench unlike Dzeko who complain too much if he didn't act as a starter.
