Chelsea find breakthrough in talks for Roma striker Dzeko

Chelsea have reached a breakthrough in talks for Roma striker Edin Dzeko.

Sky Italia says last night negotiations made good progress, although another 24-48 hours will be needed to find a real breakthrough.

Chelsea are now offering €50m plus €6m in bonuses, €30m of which is for Dzeko, but the Giallorossi are asking for a little more.

The Stamford Bridge side are also prepared to give the Bosnian a longer contract at €5.5m per year compared to the €4.5m he currently earns at Roma.

A deal for Monday is now being targeted by all parties.
