Chelsea makes final push for Roma Edin Dzeko and Palmieri - FCNaija

Edin Dzeko has admitted that he was flattered when Chelsea came calling for his signature during the January transfer window but he was quick to add that he remains happy at Roma.

The Bosnia-Herzegovina striker was heavily linked with a move to Stamford Bridge during the January transfer window.

While Emerson Palmieri did make the move from the Stadio Olimpico to west London, Antonio Conte was forced to fill his striking vacancy with a deadline-day swoop for Arsenal's Olivier Giroud.

"I am happy in Rome, with life in Rome and I don't like to look back at media rumours," the former Manchester City and Wolfsburg man told SportsCenter in his homeland.

"They are sometimes true, sometimes just pumping for clicks. There was an offer, negotiations and I was really pleased that Chelsea wanted me.

"That is all I want to say about that, while I am enjoying in Rome."

Dzeko's who has reached the 50-goal mark in Serie A was formerly at another Premier League side Manchester City.
