Edin Dzeko’s Chelsea Joining Date Revealed


Edin Dzeko is expected to complete his proposed switch to Chelsea from Serie A giants Roma on Thursday, according to Italian outlet Tutto Mercato.

Antonio Conte confirms: “Yes, Chelsea Star is joining Newcastle”


Antonio Conte has confirmed that Kenedy is joining Newcastle on loan from Chelsea.

The move will give Kenedy, 21, the chance to play first-team football for the remainder of the campaign as his first-team chances at Chelsea have been limited.

He has not featured in the Premier League this season, with all five of his appearances coming in cup competitions.

“Yes I think he’s going on loan to Newcastle,” said Blues boss Conte.

“For sure we are talking about a young player with great potential.

“At this moment in his career he needs to play with regularity and I think going to Newcastle is a great challenge for him.”

Conte hopes Kenedy can follow the example of defender Andreas Christensen, who has established himself as a first-team player at Chelsea after spending two seasons on loan at Borussia Mönchengladbach.

The Italian also believes Kenedy is better equipped for Premier League football than during his unsuccessful spell at Watford last season.

He barely featured after joining the Hornets on a season-long loan and therefore returned to Chelsea last January.

Conte said: “I think this way is good for the club and we have used the same way for Christensen. Now Christensen is a Chelsea player who is always in the starting 11.

“I think it will be good for Kenedy but at the same time he has to know that he must be ready to fight to play at Newcastle, because don’t forget in his first six months at Watford he struggled a lot to play and played only 24 minutes.

“But I think now he is more ready. Now he can show his potential by going out on loan.”

Meanwhile, Alvaro Morata and Cesc Fabregas have been ruled out of Chelsea’s Carabao Cup semi-final second leg at Arsenal.

Chelsea ‘agree’ Edin Dzeko & Emerson Palmieri deals


Chelsea, Edin Dzeko & Emerson Palmieri

After over six months of searching, are Chelsea about to sign another striker?

Alvaro Morata joined Chelsea from Real Madrid in the summer, however it’s been clear for a long time that Antonio Conte wants more options up top.

Last summer Chelsea tried and failed to sign Fernando Llorente. He joined Tottenham.

In the current transfer window, the Pensioners have been linked to some questionable deals. That’s included claims that West Ham’s Andy Carroll or Stoke’s Peter Crouch could move to Stamford Bridge.

Yet, on Sunday morning, belief is boosted that Roma duo Edin Dzeko and Emerson Palmieri are about to sign deals with the Blues.’

Fabrizio Romano on the Roma transfers

Dzeko, of course, is well versed in Premier League football.

The 31-year-old Bosnian centre-forward spent five years at Man City from 2011 to 2016.

This season Dzeko has scored 12 goals in 26 matches in all competitions.

And who is Emerson Palmieri? He’s a 23-year-old Brazilian left-back who would plug another hole in Conte’s squad.

On Sunday morning Fabrizio Romano – who often writes for the Guardian – has taken to social media to report on Chelsea’s moves for the Roma pair.

In great news for Blues fans it’s claimed that Edin Dzeko and Emerson Palmieri have both “accepted” offers for Chelsea.

With the personal contracts wrapped up, focus is shifted on whether Chelsea can convince Roma to sell.

Fabrizio Romano notes that a €50 million offer for the Roma twosome was rejected, so Chelsea have to up their offer next week.

It’s believed the deal could end up being €50 million plus another €10 million in add-ons.

Michy Batshuayi & Borussia Dortmund

Are Michy Batshuayi’s days at Stamford Bridge already numbered?

It’s also claimed that if Dzeko joins the Blues, Belgian striker Batshuayi could sign on for Borussia Dortmund.

BVB are on the lookout for attackers as Arsenal close in on Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
