78-goal hitman Dzeko eyes up Premier League move as Chelsea eye potential deal

Chelsea target Edin Dzeko has admitted he wants to play in the Premier League again, months after being linked with the club.

The former Manchester City striker, who won two Premier League titles during his time up North, has reignited his career at Roma and has become one of the most prolific in Seria A, scoring 78 goals since his arrival at the Italians a few seasons ago.

His ability to find the back of the net on a regular basis linked him with a £32 million move to Stamford Bridge, with rumours former boss Antonio Conte wanted to replace Alvaro Morata and Olivier Giroud with the Bosnian before Maurizio Sarri took over.

Sarri eventually decided to give Morata and Giroud the opportunity to impress as the clubs top man, but so far this season they have failed to do anything buy make up the numbers and have left all the hard work to Eden Hazard, Jorginho, Mateo Kovacic and the rest of the attack.

However, we have now been boosted by the latest to come out of Dzeko’s mouth, as the Roma ace has admitted that he would one day like to make a move back to the Premier League, telling Sky Sports: ‘Regarding the Premier League, maybe it’s too late. You never know.

‘I had four-and-a-half great years there, and had fun every minute of every game. I love the Premier League and England, so we’ll see. At the moment I’m happy in Rome.’

Would we like to see money get spent on Dzeko? Here is what we think.

Now I am a firm believer in not making stupid decisions and signing players that will not make the side better, and acquiring the services of Dzeko would be a huge financial mistake, one just like Andrei Shevchenko.

He is now 32-years old and playing in a League which is far superior to the Premier League, so bringing him back in the coming transfer windows would just be a big waste of money and I would prefer Sarri to spend his money on a fresher, younger and more hungrier forward that can lead the attack for the next five years, not the next one.

Get the Chelsea word out there!
