Talks with Edin Dzeko stall as Conte reveals he is happy for Michy Batshuayi to stay at the club

Chelsea have been negotiating with Italian club AS Roma for Edin Dzeko and Emerson Palmieri, however talks seem to have broken down for the Bosnian forward.

The Brazilian full-back is set to sign with Chelsea on Monday according to reports, however a deal to bring Dzeko back to England as well is looking increasingly unlikely as talks have collapsed, as per the Independent.

Following Chelsea’s win over Newcastle on Sunday afternoon, Conte was asked about Batshuayi’s future and any potential loan move for the Belgian.

Michy Batshuayi now has just two goals less than team-mate Alvaro Morata. 

“Loan? I don’t know what happens.  But when you play Premier League, Champions League and then FA Cup, if we have three strikers it is the minimum. We have to see what happens in the market. It doesn’t mean Michy has to go on loan. We have a lot of competitions. Three strikers is the minimum.

“I know there is a World Cup and every player wants to play to push the coach of their national team. But this is another situation. In this case, if the club decides to add another player, I don’t know if Michy wants to stay or go on loan, it will be the player’s decision not my decision.

“I’m ready to continue to work with these players. I’m very happy.”

The forward netted twice for Chelsea against the Toon as he scored his 9th and 10th of the season in a quickfire double before the half-time interval.

If Michy Batshuayi is going to continue in this rich vein of form, then Chelsea should keep him. Edin Dzeko would be cup tied and would be surplus to requirements in Europe.
