Chelsea: Emerson yes, Dzeko…

Reports in Italy and England agree Emerson Palmieri is leaving Roma for Chelsea, but there are contrasting claims about Edin Dzeko’s proposed move.

According to Corriere dello Sport and Sky Sports, Emerson’s agreement with Chelsea is set in stone.

However, while Il Corriere believes Dzeko is “very close” to the Blues, Sky Sports warns the striker is taking his time over giving an answer, with personal terms a problem.

Furthermore, while Chelsea would want to sign both players for a combined €50m, the Giallorossi are thought to be holding out for €10m more in bonuses.

There is also the possibility of Belgium forward Michy Batshuayi heading in the opposite direction on loan.

Nonetheless, Sky expects Dzeko’s agent in London “in the next 24 hours”, when the Premier League champions will offer him ‘improved’ terms.
