The London Evening Standard have provided us with an update on Chelsea’s pursuit of AS Roma centre-forward Edin Dzeko.

As per the London Evening Standard, the Premier League champions are keen to draft in both Dzeko and teammate Emerson Palmieri from the Serie A heavyweights in a £44M deal between now and the end of the transfer window.

The Sun reported that Chelsea had agreed a deal in principle to sign Dzeko, with only minor details separating the Bosnian and a move to Stamford Bridge. However, it appears as though the tabloid may have jumped the gun a little.

The London Evening Standard’s most recent report on the situation claims that Dzeko is seeking assurances from Antonio Conte that he will be playing regular first-team football.

It is claimed that Dzeko’s agent will be flying into London on Tuesday to hold talks with Chelsea. These could prove pivotal in our pursuit of the AS Roma goal-machine. Let’s wait and see if any further information arises tomorrow.
