Chelsea close in on £52m double deal for Roma pair

  • Craig Bellamy scored 13 Premier League goals for Liverpool

The 23-year-old's arrival could be part of a double swoop on Roma as the Evening Standard claim Chelsea are also in talks over a deal to sign Dzeko this month.

The Sun reported that Chelsea had agreed a deal in principle to sign Dzeko, with only minor details separating the Bosnian and a move to Stamford Bridge.

Since Tammy Abraham is out on loan and Michy Batshuayi has been a bust, the Spaniard has been Chelsea's lone reliable scoring presence this season.

Left-back Emerson has missed much of this season due to rehabilitation from a cruciate knee ligament injury but Dzeko's departure would be immediately and keenly felt.

Roma sporting director Monchi discussed the club's interest in Dzeko last week.

McCain tells Trump to stop attacking press
This alone should be a source of great shame for us in this body, especially for those of us in the president's party. Trump's constant criticism of the media "has provided cover for repressive regimes to follow suit", McCain wrote.

Chelsea is reportedly eyeing a move for Dzeko and his Roma teammate left-back Emerson Palmieri for a speculated fee of £44 million.

Again, before we lay it out, we know that both clubs would not be able to use Cup-tied players in the UCL and that gives the rumor its unrealistic bent.

The World Cup-winning coach will demand that Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski, Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois and Bayern midfielder Arturo Vidal are brought in if he is to take the reins. The move for the powerful Algeria worldwide follows attempts to recruit Andy Carroll from West Ham United and Peter Crouch from Stoke City.

Still, Palace will not let the Belgian go unless the Blues sign the player on a permanent basis, not as a loanee. With Premier League leaders Manchester City 15 points ahead of Chelsea, the Roma duo's primary duty would be to help Conte's side cement a place in the top flight's top four.
