Speaking to Copa90 Chelsea star Eden Hazard revealed that he would like his former team-mate Kevin de Bruyne to rejoin him at Stamford Bridge.

The Blues forward was asked which of his Belgian teammates he would like to join him in the capital, Hazard said:”Kevin De Bruyne.”

However, when he was reminded that De Bruyne had already played at Chelsea, Hazard revealed which other Belgian international he would like to play alongside for the Blues.

“Go on, I’ll give another one… Radja Nainggolan! He’s good, he’s good.”

Nainggolan has been linked with a move to Chelsea in the past and he would be a major hit at Stamford Bridge, but the midfielder has just renewed his deal with AS Roma and is not sure if he will be able to move next summer.

Liverpool star Mohamed Salah reveals his Chelsea flop was due to lack of playing time:

“I didn’t do well because I didn’t play many games,” the Egypt international claimed.

“I was there for one year, but I only played during the first six months. After that, I hardly participated.

“I went to Fiorentina, scored goals, then in Rome I played very well and returned to England. But it’s not a matter of succeeding or not…”

“This year I’m scoring more goals. In any case, I want to help the team to win titles or be in a good position in the league.”

According to many speculations and reports across Europe, Chelsea are looking for a new manager for next season to replace Antonio Conte.

Spanish newspaper SPORT, for example, claim the Blues are working to sign Luis Enrique, but, at least at the moment, they don’t want to sack Conte, as, in doing so, they would have to pay him a huge compensation fee.

The name of the former As Roma and Barcelona manager isn’t however the only one linked to Chelsea as it is understood Roman Abramovich is keen on Maurizio Sarri, Napoli’s coach as reported, for example by the Gazzetta dello Sport in the last few days.

Tonight Chelsea will play Watford in a Premier League game which can mark the debut with the Blues for new signing Emerson Palmieri.

Speaking to Chelsea official site, defender Antonio Rudiger, has tried to describe the Brazilian who played with him also with As Roma.

He’s a player who did very well at Roma, especially last season,” Rudiger said. “We played in Rome with the same system as we do here, so he was the left wing-back. Most of the time I was playing on the left of the back three so I was next to him, and he was a big help. He’s good at the offensive part, and also good at the defensive part. He is not afraid to make tackles, and he can play one against one because he’s physically good. He also has good pace. For me he is a very good young player with potential.”

Esultanza dopo il gol di Edin Dzeko Roma. Goal celebration. Roma 07-02-2017 Stadio Olimpico Campionato Serie A, AS Roma - Fiorentina

AS Roma striker Edin Dzeko confirmed that he held talks with Chelsea but he feels at home in the Italian capital and did not want to move:

“It is true that negotiations have been conducted and that is all I can say about this topic,” he told Klix.

“There was a lot of speculation, falsehoods and even a few ridiculous stories, and I’m really flattered by Chelsea‘s interest, a club that I respect and admire very much.

“So many stories have been told about my departure from Rome over the past few weeks, but I am still here. After all, I am happy to stay because Rome has become my home and an indelible part of my life.

“From the very first day I was accepted in Rome in an unreal way and I can never and will not forget it, and I have had some of the happiest moments in my life in this city.

“For the first time I felt the joy of fatherhood here when my daughter Una was born, and my son Dani was born in Rome. This city is now part of my life and it will always be.”

The Bosnian striker was part of the deal that brought Emerson Palmieri to Stamford Bridge: apparently, the two club agreed a £ 50m fee for both players, but then Dzeko failed to agree personal terms with Chelsea and the deal was called off, with the only Emerson moving to the London side.

An official statement from Chelsea‘s website read: “The 23-year-old has signed a four-and-a-half-year contract and will wear the number 33 shirt”.

Upon signing for the Premier League champions, Emerson said: ‘I came here because it’s a great team with a great history. Today I am realising one of my dreams to pull on the shirt of such a great club.

Emerson Palmieri has today become the latest addition to the Chelsea squad after completing a transfer from Italian side Roma”.

Judging from some pictures, leaked over the web by agent John Erriot, Emerson Palmieri to Chelsea is a done deal: the Brazilian wing-back posed for a photo with his agent Federico Pastorello, Blues director Marina Granovskaia and other people from his entourage after he put pen on paper at Stamford Bridge offices.

Chelsea are expected to confirm the deal in hours.

According to gianlucadimarzio.com website Chelsea and As Roma are closing the deal for Emerson Palmieri‘s move to Stamford Bridge.

The deal will not include, at least at the moment, striker Edin Dzeko and the Blues will pay the Italian side 20 million euros plus 6 million in bonuses.

It seems the deal could be finalized this evening with the Brazilian player reaching London tomorrow to undergo his medical and sign his new contract with Chelsea.

AS Roma are keen to keep Edin Dzeko after the striker has rejected the deal Chelsea have offered to him.

The Blues tried to propose a 1 year contract with the option to new it for another year to respect their policy about giving only 1 year deals to over 30 but the Bosnian striker ( who will be 32 in March) rejected it and demanded a 2 year contract plus an option for another year to the Stamford Bridge side.

Roma and Chelsea have already agreed a £ 26m fee for the transfer but now the deal is hold until the former Manchester City forward and Roman Abramovich club won’t agree personal terms.

According to ChelseaNews24 sources, Roma manager Eusebio Di Francesco is getting nervous for the prolonging negotiation and is not keen to let him go anymore, also because the Giallorossi are now short of time to look for a replacement and are still in the race for a Champions League spot. So the deal is about to be called off soon.

In the last game against Sampdoria – that had been in hand since last September – Dzeko scored the equaliser at 94′, showing again his importance for Roma.

Furthermore, the Bosnian striker and his wife recently bought a house in Rome – having planned to live in the Italian capital for several years- and are not really keen to leave the Eternal City in this moment.

The Blues are adamant that the Bosnia-Erzegovina international will accept their contract offer, despite several rumors from Italy suggested the move is anything but done.

Talks between AS Roma and Chelsea continue, anyway Antonio Conte has reportedly targeted Olivier Giroud as a potential target if Edin Dzeko decides to stay in the Italian Serie A with Giallorossi.

The Arsenal forward featured in 25 games with the Gunners this season, scoring 7 goals so far.
