When Chelsea and Roma played back-to-back Champions League group games earlier this season, many were impressed with the quality on show.
In the first game, the two sides drew 3-3 at Stamford Bridge, in one of the best matches of the 2017-18 group stage.
Roma striker Edin Dzeko was on fire that night, scoring two brilliant goals on his return to England, netting a sensational volley and a header.
The former Manchester City striker had put the away side ahead in that game before Eden Hazard levelled.
Antonio Conte's side were then smashed 3-0 in the reverse fixture in Italy, with Stephan El Shaarawy scoring a double that night.
And after getting a taste of Roma's quality first-hand, it now appears that Chelsea are looking to the Italian side to answer some of their attacking questions.
The Blues have been linked with some strange names already in January, with both Andy Carroll and Peter Crouch said to be two target men Chelsea are chasing.
But with those deals looking increasingly unlikely, reports have suggested that Dzeko is being scouted as Conte looks to bring in some more competition for Alvaro Morata.
And if Chelsea get what they want, he won't be coming alone.
Last week, reports suggested that the club enquired over bringing both Dzeko and midfielder Emerson Palmieri in from Roma.
And now, according to the Guardian, they're readying an offer of £44 million to complete the double swoop.
It would be a pretty good deal for Chelsea, who can fix the short-term striker problem while bringing in 23-year-old Palmieri for the future.
But according to the Guardian's report, Roma are holding out for a £44 million offer plus £13.2 million in add-ons, which the English club are reluctant to meet.
Chelsea, however, are confident a deal can cut before the transfer window slams shut in 10 days time.
And with their Premier League rivals strengthening this month, the London club need to act fast to ensure they're not left behind.
