Chelsea one step closer to shocking double transfer

Chelsea are normally associated with big name transfers but it seems that Antonio Conte is not one for the conventional.

According to the latest transfer gossip, Roma pair Edin Dzeko and Emerson Palmieri are on their way to Stamford Bridge in what can only be characterised as a surprise move.

The Italian media are claiming that both players have been given permission to open discussions with the Premier League champions and that Dzeko has already agreed to terms.

The amount of money involved in this double deal is reportedly in the region of £50 Million.

For some reason Conte wants a big English type of forward and Dzeko fits that bill, he also has experience of playing in the Premier League from his time at Man City.

This particular piece of gossip has a ring of truth to it and at least one of them is likely to pitch up their tent at Chelsea this week.
