Antonio Conte is ready to end his search for a big striker after Chelsea made a £50million deal to sign Edin Dzeko.
Mirror sport reveals that Chelsea have agreed to pay that price to Italian side Roma for the former Manchester City forward, plus their Brazilian left-back Emerson Palmieri.
Emerson’s contract is already sorted and he is set to sign, while Dzeko’s representatives flew to London on Monday to finalise his personal terms.
The Bosnia and Herzegovina star who turns 32 in March and whose contract at Roma expires in 2020, has been assured of games despite the presence of striker, Alvaro Morata.
Roma have agreed to let him go and that has persuaded Dzeko to move to Stamford Bridge, where a contract worth £120,000-a-week is on the table.
