Chelsea boss Antonio Conte admits he is unsure whether the champions will sign Roma striker Edin Dzeko.

The Blues are in the market for a new striker with Dzeko tipped to follow his team-mate Emerson Palmieri to Stamford Bridge.

Conte remained coy though when pushed on a move for the Bosnian.

"I don't know, as you know, if there's news," Conte said. "The club will inform you."

Conte then added that he is prepared to utilise the youth team if players leave this month.
