Chelsea Set Sight On AC Milan Target Edin Dzeko


Chelsea are in the hunt for a striker and is believed to be preparing to launch a bid for Wolfsburg top striker Edin Dzeko.

Local newspapers have reported that the English giants are poised to launch a £20million bid to bring Dzeko to Stamford Bridge.

It is believed that Blues boss Carlo Ancelotti who has so far been frustrated in his attempts to sign superstars of the calibre of Kaka, David Villa and Franck Ribery this summer has asked owner Roman Abramovich to instead go for one of the most exciting young strikers in Europe.

Dzeko aged 23, has scored 26 goals last season as underdogs Wolfsburg stormed to win the Bundesliga title ahead of powerhouse Bayern Munich.

It has also been widely reported that Ancelotti’s old club AC Milan have been tracking Dzeko all summer but have been repeatedly rejected by Wolfsburg, while English club Arsenal have also been on his trail.

But Abramovich is confident that Chelsea’s financial power can finally persuade Wolfsburg to sell their prized asset and enable Dzeko to leave Germany.
