- The former Man City striker was linked with a move to Everton last season.
- However, he rejected the chance outright.
- This was not because of the team in question - rather, Dzeko hates the weather in Merseyside.
The transfer revelation was made by Premier League commentator Ian Darke over the weekend, who said that the striker was not keen on living anywhere near the city of Liverpool.
Darke told ESPN FC: "I'll tell you a story here, we were out covering a Roma game in the Champions League.
"And Owen Hargreaves, who was the co-commentator with me, got to speak to Edin Dzeko, who played for Roma, after the game and said: 'Everton are interested in you, you know'.
"And he said: 'What do you think I'm going to decide? I can stay in Rome or go to the pouring rain of Merseyside to play for Everton? Please don't ask me that one again'."
Everton fans can be moderately happy in this glass-half-full situation - for once, a player rejected them not because their club is performing badly, but because he did not want to deal with the climate of the area!
