It’s something of a transfer triangle – three players making moves, with each of those moves dependent on the other two.
Italian soccer agent Massimo Briaschi has expressed confidence that Chelsea will sign Roma striker Edin Dzeko this January. This is despite there being just four days of the winter window left and the club having only managed to land Ross Barkley out of their many rumoured targets.
Chelsea defender Cesar Azpilcueta has expressed his concern that Chelsea have been late to the table in doing business this transfer window – but is still confident his side can strengthen before deadline day.
Chelsea are in discussions with Serie A side AS Roma over a stunning double deal for Emerson Palmieri and Edin Dzeko, reportedly worth up to €65 million.
Eden Hazard bagged a brace as Chelsea drew 3-3 with Italian giants Roma at Stamford Bridge in a topsy-turvy Champions League encounter. The Blues initially led 2-0 before being pegged back to 2-3 in the second half, before the Belgian salvaged a crucial point for Antonio Conte’s men.
