Roma striker Edin Dzeko: Chelsea push not easy for me

Roma striker Edin Dzeko admits he found January speculation involving Chelsea unsettling.

Chelsea made a serious attempt to sign the Bosnian before turning to former Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud.

“It was not easy for me. A very complicated 10 days and you could tell from my performances on the pitch too," confessed Dzeko to the AS Roma Match Program.

“I don't want to think about it anymore. It's in the past now, I want to look ahead and give everything for Roma. As I said at the end of January, Roma is my home and Roma are my family. That says it all.

“I've scored fewer goals than last season, but the team is what matters the most. If I score a goal and we lose, such as against Atalanta, it means nothing. When we win, then I am happy, although obviously I also love to score goals."
