Chelsea, Man City battling for Dzeko and David Luiz

Chelsea and Manchester City are battling for the two same players next month. The Telegraph says Chelsea are going head to head with Manchester City to sign Edin Dzeko and David Luiz in the January transfer window.

It is understood that while Dzeko appears set to join City - with one club source on Tuesday claiming a "decisive move" is being made this week for the Wolfsburg striker - Luiz may move to Chelsea if Benfica lower their excessive demands.

Benfica have quoted a fee of €40 million (£34 million) for the 23-year-old Brazilian who is wanted by Chelsea manager Carlo Ancelotti and who can play in any position across defence and as a holding midfielder.

Dzeko is rated at around £34 million by Wolfsburg, which rejected an offer from City in the summer for the Bosnian.
