Chelsea eye former Man City star in £50m double raid

Chelsea eye former Man City star in £50m double raid

The January transfer window is in full swing so clubs are working hard trying to strengthen their squads for the second half of the season and put deals in place for the summer.

He's eager to land a new striker and a target man seems to be his preference.

The Blues have made enquiries for a string of big centre-forwards over the past week including Andy Carroll, Fernando Llorente, Peter Crouch and Edin Dzeko.

But Dzeko was caught having a chat with Totti as the Roma squad boarded a train to Milan for this afternoon's clash with Inter.

And Chelsea's search has now taken them to the Italian capital as they try to secure a deal for ex-Manchester City man Edin Dzeko. The blow also denied him his chance to join up with the Italy national squad after receiving his first call-up.

He was non-committal when pressed over whether there's been any contact from Chelsea.

"I think this will happen because Roma do accept offers for players and I think Dzeko would like it".

"Every time you talk about Dzeko, clubs like Chelsea, Chinese clubs, even Mexican clubs crop up". 'These are just rumours.

The Bosnia and Herzegovina global moved to Roma initially on loan in the summer of 2015 and has so far racked up one hundred and sixteen appearances for them in all competitions, scoring sixty-one goals.

Yet after filling in for Morata admirably as Chelsea thrashed Brighton, Conte could well change his plans, and give Belgium worldwide Batshuayi a more prominent role. I understand the question, but I have a very specific role.

Conte is also looking to add to his strike-force to help ease the pressure on Alvaro Morata - who's scored just once in his last ten appearances - and Dzeko is now on Chelsea's radar.
