Chelsea close to sealing double signing from Roma

In addition to Dzeko, they have also been linked with the likes of Christian Benteke, Andy Carroll, Peter Crouch, Ashley Barnes, Fernando Llorente, Islam Slimani and Marko Arnautovic.

The Blues have reportedly reached an agreement with AS Roma over Edin Dzeko services.

The player has already agreed to move the South West London and is only waiting for Roma to allow him to fly to London to join the Blues.

Conte's side aim at signing the Roma forward as a back up for Alvaro Marata.

The 31-year-old has been a big success in Roma since his 2015 move from Manchester City.

A deal to bring Dzeko back to the Premier League, however, two years after he brought an end to his spell at Manchester City, is proving to be a little more hard.
