Transfer news: Edin Dzeko agrees to join Chelsea

Roma striker, Edin Dzeko has agreed a move to Chelsea this January.

Manager, Antonio Conte is in search of a back-up striker to support Alvaro Morata for the remainder of the 2017/18 campaign with names such as Andy Carroll, Peter Crouch and Jamie Vardy being mentioned but it’s understood the Blues are closing in on a deal for Dzeko.

Italian outlet, Gianluca Di Marzio, claims Dzeko has reached an agreement with Chelsea and said “yes” to Conte over a move to Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea are also keen on signing Dzeko’s team-mate at Roma, Emerson Palmieri, and talks over a double deal are set to resume next week.

It’s understood that Roma want a combined fee of around £44million from Chelsea for the duo, while out-of-favour Michy Batshuayi could complete a loan move in the opposite direction.
