What Edin Dzeko said to Francesco Totti about moving to Chelsea

FBL-ITA-ROMA-SEVILLA-FRIENDLY

Roma striker Edin Dzeko has been linked with a January move to Chelsea over the last few days and Francesco Totti couldn't resist asking him about it.

The former Manchester City man joined Roma in 2015 and finished last season as Serie A's top scorer with 29 goals.

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has been looking to sign a physical striker in January and has been linked with shock moves for Andy Carroll and Peter Crouch.

Dzeko, 31, is the calibre of player fans at Stamford Bridge would hope to see in a Chelsea shirt.

He scored 50 Premier League goals during his time at Manchester City and, with Morata struggling in front of goal, would provide another option up front.

Belgian back-up striker Michy Batshuayi failed to find the net as Chelsea eased to a 4-0 win at Brighton on Saturday afternoon.

Totti and Dzeko joke about Chelsea move at train station

Catching the train ahead of Sunday's tasty meeting against Inter Milan, Roma legend Francesco Totti was seen asking Dzeko about the speculation linking him with a move to Chelsea.

Totti famously spent his whole career in Rome despite opportunities to earn more money and win more trophies elsewhere.

The 41-year-old was caught on camera joking: “This train doesn’t go to London, does it?”

Dzeko smiled and replied “Not yet”. Watch the video below.

Dzeko has scored nine goals in 19 Serie A games this season and - despite rumours of a move to London - is expected to be in the starting XI at the San Siro on Sunday night.

Roma director of sport Monchi held a press conference on Saturday amid reports of an exodus of players at the club.

“We found ourselves forced to create some clarity here. For too many days, Roma have been described in the papers as a club being dismantled. I even read we are selling players without their knowledge,” said Monchi.

“It is a description that is very far away from the reality of the situation. We cannot be blamed for having many strong players in the squad who are of interest to many top clubs."
