Chelsea are closing in on the signings of Edin Dzeko and Emerson Palmieri from AS Roma, according to reports.

Dzeko could be a slightly more hard move, the striker featuring in every game for Roma this season, but Chelsea remain confident of getting their man.

In the last couple of weeks, the Chelsea boss has been linked with moves for a number of different frontmen, all of which fitting the "target man" description.

From the Giallorossi's perspective, they want the deal to go through as they will receive €30 million up front plus an easily-attainable €5 million more in bonuses.

The reigning Premier League champions have been linked with a host of strikers this month, but it appears former Manchester City forward Dzeko has emerged as their top target.

The 31-year-old Bosnia-Herzegovina global has scored 61 times in 117 appearances for Roma since joining on an initial loan from City in 2015.

Chelsea are interested in signing Arturo Vidal from Bayern Munich this summer, report Bild .

The deal to sign Edin Dzeko is a bit more complicated though as it would take some convincing from the board to guarantee the playing time which would satisfy the Bosnian. He has led the line with authority at the Stadio Olimpico, thriving with his back to goal and showcasing a tremendous ability to bring others into the game.

Provided he can get over that problem, the defender would be a sensible addition.

Meanwhile, Palmeri is wanted as an alternative option to Marcos Alonso on Conte's left flank, and Chelsea are looking to complete a deal with Roma for both players for around £44 million.

Conte's side aim at signing the Roma forward as a back up for Alvaro Marata.
