Chelsea enter talks to sign former Manchester City superstar in €50m-plus double deal – report

Former Manchester City star Edin Dzeko could be returning to the Premier League after rivals Chelsea made an approach to sign both he and Emerson Palmieri in a double deal from AS Roma.

According to Gianluca Di Marzio of Sky Italia, Antonio Conte’s side have offered €50million plus the loan of Michy Batshuayi to sign the Roma pair, but Roma have requested an extra €15million in bonuses – suggesting they are willing to do business.

Dzeko, a figure of much debate during his time at City, scored some of the biggest, most important goals in a new era of success for the club, finding the net 72 times in 189 appearances during his five seasons in Manchester.

He is now fondly remembered, particularly for his contributions in two Premier League title wins, but could soon be in a rivals shirt with Chelsea making a serious push to sign the ‘Bosnian Diamond’ and his teammate Emerson Palmieri.
