April 17, 2018

Chelsea may have the edge over hosts of European teams to sign a highly-sought-after striker Edin Dzeko due to one key reason. 

The Blues could beat the likes of AC Milan to seal a transfer for Former Manchester City forward.

The respected Italian outlet CalcioMercato reported that AC Milan have shown serious interest to secure the services of Bosnia Herzegovina national team forward who currently plays for AS Roma. However, the report suggests that Italian giants would be unwilling to part with the forward and refusing to sell him the to direct Premier League rivals and it gives Chelsea advantage to secure his services.

The Daily Mail reported, earlier in January that defending Premier League champions were eying up the pursuit for Bosnia Herzegovina International forward with Antonio Conte’s side lodged a £25m bid for his signature.

The 32-year-old forward has had a superb season for the Italian giants this campaign and played a vital role in Roma’s heroics in the Champions League.

Italian giants overturned a 4-1 deficit against Barcelona in the Champions League, and Dzeko lead the historic comeback by registering AS Roma’s first goal rewarding a penalty.

Roma, of course, will not want to part with such a talented forward. However, if they were to part with Bosman, the Blues could hold the edge over the likes of AC Milan in the race for his signature.
