Arsenal have been urged to make their own move to sign Edin Dzeko from Roma, with Chelsea seeming to be struggling to complete the deal.
The Blues are said to have been in talks to sign Roma duo Edin Dzeko and Emerson Palmieri for the past week, but for some reason are unable to get the deal over the line.
Arsenal are also believed to be working on deals to sign a forward to take some of the load of struggling pair Olivier Giroud and Alexandre Lacazette, and have been strongly linked with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, but the Dortmund star is set to play against Freiburg today, which severely looks to be putting that move to one side.
The Gunners have now been urged to make their own move for Dzeko, who is claimed to be the ideal man to bag 20 goals a season.
Ian McGarry said: “I couldn’t believe when City were disposing of him as a player that Arsenal didn’t move in to sign him because he looked the obvious player to get 20 goals a season for them.
“Clearly Chelsea’s mooted interest in Andy Carroll and people like that has convinced everyone they are looking for a tall, powerful striker to be backup to Alvaro Morata.
“So Dzeko back in the Premier League I’d be happy about because I like him as a player.”
Would Dzeko be the ideal man to challenge Lacazette? Would his Premier League experience be more useful than the sheer ability of Aubameyang? Would Dzeko take more pressure off Lacazette due to his age?
