Chelsea and Roma transfer talks for Emerson Palmieri confirmed by agent


Roma are trying to resist any deal to bring Dzeko back to the Premier League where he played around 100 games for Manchester City between 2011 and 2015.

And talks are well underway to secure a "dream" move for the Brazil-born left back, according to the player's agent.

Its not the first time that a Premier League side have been linked with the Italian, with Liverpool also having been linked in the last few months.

"There's still nothing certain, we are in a stage of discussion and evaluations", Garcia told Calcio Mercato.

And the 23-year-old's agent, Fernando Garcia, believes a move to Chelsea is a "concrete possibility".

Finally asked if Emerson has the wish to play under Antonio Conte, the representative said: "Obviously yes, it would be a dream: Conte is a top manager, one of the best and most successful in the world".

Dzeko turns 32 in March, so it isn't entirely out of the question that Roma would sell for the right price, especially as they already invested in replacement Patrik Schick.

Fernando Garcia, agent of Roma defender Emerson Palmieri has claimed that the Italian club are in talks with Chelsea over a possible move for the Italy global.

They add however that stance could change should Chelsea return with a firmer approach later this window.

And it seems the Stamford Bridge club have now switched their attention to Roma's Emerson Palmieri with talks said to be underway.
