Chelsea have been linked with strikers like Ashley Barnes, Andy Carroll and Peter Crouch, before the Blues now settled for Roma’s Edin Dzeko.

The 31-year-old proved his worth on Wednesday night by scoring a dying minute goal to salvage a point for his team just as Chelsea were struggling to break down Arsenal’s defence.

Roma were trailing Sampdoria 1-0 as the game entered into the 90th minute when a ball was fired into the box. And Dzeko managed to find some space and fired a bullet header past the goalkeeper into the bottom left of the goal – to earn his team a draw.

Just around the same time, Chelsea struggled to break down Arsenal in the 2-1 Carabao Cup semi-final defeat.

Reports claim Chelsea have agreed terms with Roma for Dzeko.
