Fabbricini: 'Economic aspect for Italy'

FIGC Commissioner Roberto Fabbricini admits “there is a financial aspect to be respected” when choosing the new Italy Coach, “but we rule nobody out.”

The Nazionale still don’t have a CT in place after sacking Gian Piero Ventura in November, so Under-21 boss Gigi Di Biagio is in the caretaker role for two friendlies.

He lost the first 2-0 to Argentina and takes on England at Wembley this evening, but other candidates include Carlo Ancelotti, Antonio Conte and Roberto Mancini.

Chelsea go for Dzeko again?

Chelsea failed to tempt Edin Dzeko from Roma in January, but there are reports the club will try again over the summer.

According to Spanish site El Gol Digital, Chelsea are preparing another attempt to get Dzeko at the end of the season.

His price-tag should drop considerably, as he turned 32 last week, but remains on good form with 17 goals and five assists in 37 competitive games this season.
