EDIN DZEKO looks set to leave Roma after falling out with manager Paulo Fonseca.
And there's no shortage of interest in the 34-year-old centre-forward with Real Madrid the leading contenders.

Bookmakers Betfair have installed the Spanish heavyweights as 2/1 favourites to secure his signature before next Monday's deadline.
Zinedine Zidane is eager to bolster his attacking options with Luka Jovic loaned back to Eintracht Frankfurt for the remainder of the season.
The Frenchman has 33-year-old Karim Benzema and Mariano Diaz as his only recognised centre-forwards as he looks to reel in leaders Atletico Madrid.
Barcelona are next in the betting market at 4/1.
Ronald Koeman has asked the board to sign him a striker and a loan deal for Dzeko could prove a good compromise with the club in financial strife.
It's a 6/1 chance that Dzeko joins Carlo Ancelotti at Goodison Park this January.

The Merseyside club are relying on Dominic Calvert-Lewin for goals with Moise Kean and Ellis Simms away on loan and Cenk Tosun expected to leave shortly.
A return to Manchester City could also be on the cards at 8/1.
Dzeko scored 72 goals and provided 39 assists during his time at the Etihad, where he won two Premier League titles.
City have struggled for goals with Sergio Aguero sidelined and Gabriel Jesus having netted just one top-flight goal since November.
West Ham are the outsiders of the bunch at 12s but that price could soon shrink with David Moyes desperate for attacking reinforcements.
Dzeko has bagged 114 goals for Roma since arriving from City in 2016.
But his relationship with manager Fonseca looks beyond repair after the pair clashed over the club’s decision to dismiss team manager Gianluca Gomber.
The Roma captain was dropped for Saturday's 4-3 win over Spezia, and afterwards Fonseca refused to answer questions about the player.
He said: "I understand the curiosity you have, but I don’t want to say anything else.
"I already talked about this yesterday, I don’t want to say anything more. The important thing is what we did here today, a great victory for the team."
