Chelsea might have turned their attention to Roma in search of a striker after their supposed loan deal for West Ham’s Andy Carroll collapsed due to injury.

Reports from Sky Italy suggest Chelsea are interested in signing former Manchester City striker Edin Dzeko from Roma

Their reports also say Chelsea are prepared to pay €50m for Dzeko and his team-mate Emerson Palmieri, who plays as left-back…..For some extra price though!

Chelsea are prepaird to let Roma have Michy Batshuayi on loan as part of the deal as Roma are not very willing to let go of Dzeko during this January window but the Italians are also asking for another €15m.

Rumours from early last month suggested that Eden Hazard the 26-years-old  Belgian forward who has been playing a pivotal role at Chlesea FC in recent seasons was heading towards extending his current contract with the club which runs until 2020.

Hazard’s father, Thierry Hazard was record on Friday saying his son is playing a waiting game with his Chelsea contract in an effort to keep the door open for a possible move to Real Madrid

“What I can reveal about Eden is that he refused a contract extension,” he told Le Soir.

“This was so that, if necessary, he could follow the interest of the Real, whom he could see himself playing for.

“But, as of right now, there is no contact from Real Madrid. Eden is only one of the parties involved in his future.”

Despite his fathers’ claims, Sky Sports News has been told that Eden Hazard has not been offered a new contract by Chelsea as it is too early to begin discussions.
