Dzeko – Why I snubbed Chelsea in January


  • Chelsea to offer Emerson for Roma Edin Dzeko. 
  • Dzeko adviced on why he should not return to Premier League.

Roma striker and Bosnia Herzegovina international Edin Dzeko has revealed why his proposed and widely speculated move to Chelsea in the January transfer window fell through.

The 32-year-old scored 16 goals for Roma in the Serie A this season in another productive campaign for him, and there were indications in January that he was set for a move to Stamford Bridge in a deal that included Brazilian full-back, Emerson Palmieri.

However, the Bosnian has revealed that he was advised against a return to the Premier League by those he sought advice from.

In an interview with Face TV, Edin Dzeko outlined the reasons for not favoring a return to the Premier League with Chelsea:

“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.

“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.”

Dzeko added: “Now I will play two games for Bosnia and then we’ll see [where will I play].

“I have another two years of contract, so Roma has to be asked about it too.”
