Chelsea have made an enquiry to AS Roma about the possibility of signing Edin Dzeko this month as Antonio Conte looks to add a new striker to his ranks, according to a report in the Express.

However, both Liverpool and Juventus have also been linked with a move for the Brazilian, which could further scupper the Blues' plans.

His agent Fernando Garcia said: "Of course yes, absolutely, the two clubs are now talking, we'll see if it will be successful".

Emerson Palmieri has been eyed by Antonio Conte to strengthen his defense and bring someone who can provide competition for their current first choice Marcos Alonso. If the Premier League champions do secure the signature of a left-back before the close of the January transfer window, Kenedy is likely to depart on loan until the end of the season. I have no planned trips to Italy, at least for the moment, as we are waiting for developments. "Emerson would love to play in the Premier League and would love to work with Conte, he is a top manager, one of the best in the World".

The Uruguay forward has the same number as Zlatan Ibrahimovic , who played for PSG between 2012-16. The Argentine made it 2-0 11 minutes later from point-blank range with Dijon in disarray.

Liverpool have also been linked with a bid for the 23-year-old, who has been absent for most of this season in his attempts to come back from an anterior cruciate ligament injury he picked up in May.

But the former Brazil youth worldwide is said to be very excited about his proposed move to Chelsea, mainly because of the Blues boss Antonio Conte.

Palmieri was a subject of interest last season as well, with reports coming that Inter Milan and Liverpool interested in him, the left back chose to stay in Roma and said that he is happy in Rome.
