Chelsea and Roma have agreed terms on a deal that will see Edin Dzeko move to Stamford Bridge, according to Sky in Italy.
Sky Sports News reported on Tuesday that the two sides were coming close to an agreement on a double deal for Bosnia international striker Dzeko and his club team-mate, Brazilian left-back Emerson Palmieri, and it now appears progress has been made.
Emerson Palmieri has only made three appearances for Roma since returning from a serious knee injury
However, Chelsea are yet to reach an agreement with Dzeko’s camp. It is unclear whether the issues lie over the length of the contract or the size of the wages.
Chelsea have reportedly targeted several strikers in the January transfer window, including Andy Carroll and Ashley Barnes, as Antonio Conte searches for a target man to ease the burden on Alvaro Morata.
Both Dzeko and Palmieri have been named in Roma’s squad to play away at Sampdoria on Wednesday night in Serie A.
