Roma striker Edin Dzeko: 'Chelsea transfer talk in the past'

  • 3 month ago

Edin Dzeko has stressed that he is "happy" at Roma and is ready to draw a line under the 'flattering' recent interest from Premier League champions Chelsea.

The Bosnia-Herzegovina international was rumoured to be the Blues' top striking target in January, only for a move to collapse late in the window and Olivier Giroud to join instead.

Roma sporting director Monchi revealed last month that the club would have offloaded the 31-year-old had Chelsea met his asking price, but Dzeko does not anticipate another offer being tabled.

"I am happy in Rome, with life in Rome and I don't like to look back at media rumours," he told SportsCenter. "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 [myself] in Rome."

Dzeko has scored more than 50 goals during his three years with Roma, 13 of which have come in the 2017-18 campaign.
