Chelsea to loan Kenedy to Newcastle with Emerson deal near


Edin Dzeko's agent is in London to finalise terms after Chelsea agreed a £50m deal with Roma to buy the striker and team mate Emreson Palmieri, according to the Mirror.

Eusebio Di Francesco has confirmed Edin Dzeko will start for Roma in Wednesday's Serie A clash at Sampdoria, despite rumours of an imminent transfer to Chelsea.

The Premier League champions have also been linked with moves for West Ham's Andy Carroll, Stoke's Peter Crouch and Burnley's Ashley Barnes during the January transfer window as Chelsea look for a target-man to back up for Spain worldwide Morata, who has failed to score in his last six matches in all competitions.

To be the best you have to beat the best. "They should feel confident", Durant told reporters of the Rockets after practice. We've entered the fourth season of the annual South Point-lined Play of the Day competition, effective July 1.

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte blocked the proposed move after failing to sign a left-sided player.

Dzeko has enjoyed a strong career in Italy's top flight since leaving Manchester City in 2015 and has scored nine goals in 20 appearances this season.

Dzeko was spotted while loading his suitcases this morning and that could be the final evidence that his move to Stamford Bridge is now a done deal.

Leicester to launch bid for West Brom defender, other clubs may follow
Bookmakers are firmly of the belief that Evans will end up with City and BetVictor list him at 2/5, with Arsenal 11/4. The defender has 18 months left on his current deal with an option for the club to extend it by a further 12 months.

Dzeko, however, has already featured in the competition and will not be able to feature.

The deal, which will see Roma reportedly land €50 million for the two players plus another €10m in incentives, will be finalized upon the Blues' completion of personal terms with Dzeko.

The 23-year-old has struggled to force his way back in to the Roma starting eleven since recovering from injury but the Brazilian is a huge talent so Conte will hope he rediscovers his best form here in England.
