AS Roma forward Edin Dzeko admitted he wanted to stay at the Serie A side as “nobody wanted me to move to Chelsea”.
It is understood the Blues were closing in on a move to land the Bosnia-Erzegovina striker in January, before the move collapsed. And Dzeko recently told Face TV: “Chelsea is a big challenge and I know what kind of a club that is, I’ve been at Man City and I wasn’t ready to move to Chelsea”.
“Nobody I spoke to wanted me to move to Chelsea so I decided to stay.
Dzeko added: “It has been tough period, a lot of stories and information, true and false, were written, everything went through my head, I wasn’t clear or certain of anything at the time.”
