Chelsea are continuing to hold talks with Edin Dzeko's agent in London as the Blues eye a swoop for the Roma striker.

Antonio Conte has identified Dzeko as his prime target as he looks to recruit a big forward in the January window.

Conte also wants Emerson Palmeri from the Serie A side but Roma are holding out for a combined fee of £44million, according to the Standard.

Dzeko's personal terms reportedly remain a stumbling block with the Bosnian in red-hot form this season.
