Chelsea negotiating for Emerson, Dzeko

Chelsea are not only looking at Roma’s Emerson Palmieri.

Gianluca Di Marzio reports the Blues are also eyeing Edin Dzeko. The English side are ready to offer €50 million plus the loan of Batshuayi to bring the pair to Stamford Bridge. Negotiations have started, though, Roma are requesting another €15 million in bonuses. Chelsea are thinking about Roma’s request and will decide whether to keep negotiating. If Dzeko were to leave and Batshuayi is not included in the deal, Roma could look to Daniel Sturridge of Liverpool, who Inter are also looking at.
