Chelsea have made steps forward in their negotiations with Roma for both Edin Dzeko and Emerson Palmieri, claim Sky Sport Italia.
There were reports today in England that Dzeko was unlikely to make the move and pessimism was growing around both transfers.
However, Sky Sport Italia transfer guru Gianluca Di Marzio insists this evening that negotiations made good progress today, although another 24-48 hours will be needed to find a real breakthrough.
Chelsea are now offering €50m plus €6m in bonuses, €30m of which is for Dzeko, but the Giallorossi are asking for a little more.
The Stamford Bridge side are also prepared to give the Bosnian a longer contract at €5.5m per year compared to the €4.5m he currently earns at Roma.
