Dzeko and Benteke emerge as Chelsea's top targets

The former Manchester City striker had put the away side ahead in that game before Eden Hazard levelled.

Dzeko has concerns about playing regularly if he moves to Stamford Bridge and is cup tied for the Champions League but Antonio Conte is keen to protect Alvaro Morata also from a heavy schedule. "Obviously, Emerson would love to play in the Premier League and it'd be a dream to work with Conte, as he is among the best Coaches in the world".

Reports suggest that Chelsea are close to sealing a £22 million deal with AS Roma over the transfer of Emerson Palmieri.

Palmieri, meanwhile, has already agreed terms with Chelsea and is simply waiting for the two clubs to reach a final agreement so he can fly into London for a medical. His first choice was Fernando Llorente, halfheartedly pursued by Chelsea in each of the past two windows before joining Tottenham for bigger wages and a longer contract on transfer deadline day.

Dzeko has impressed with AS Roma this season, registering 12 goals and 4 assists to his name, so far.

Foles has not been a world-beater and his first half against the Falcons included some plays that could be defined as lucky. And in the regular season, one of the ways teams were able to limit Minnesota's offense was by putting pressure on Keenum.

He fully earned his reward in the tiebreak to level the match, but Nadal restored his lead in the third with a solitary break. The third was all Nadal, and the fourth also ended in favor of the top seed, though it was hard-fought.

Chelsea and Roma are said to be in constant contact, and the Italian side seem to be very excited about the double deal.

There may be nothing beyond initial talks just yet, but that certainly sounds promising for the 23-year-old to potential head our way.

Chelsea originally wanted to bring in Carroll on loan for the rest of the season, but West Ham were unwilling to sanction such a move.

A club spokesman said: "Chelsea FC complies with all Federation Internationale de Football Association statutes and regulations when recruiting players".

"I'm not interested in this conversation, also because this is disrespectful for my players, for the other players, for the players of the other clubs. If Dzeko leaves Roma, we'll buy another player".
