Stamford Bridge boss hopes to usurp former club to clinch Wolfsburg forward signing.
Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti has reportedly entered the race for Wolfsburg’s highly rated striker Edin Dzeko. The Stamford Bridge boss faces stiff competition from his former club AC Milan as a plethora of Europe’s elite look to snap up the 24 year old this summer.
Despite seeing his Bundesliga winning side struggle last term and only managing an eighth place finish, the Bosnian still finished top scorer in the domestic league and seems certain to leave the club despite the arrival of new boss Steve McClaren.
The Premier League champions are looking for new striking options to prepare for the long term future, which seems wise given the fact that Didier Drogba (32) and Nicolas Anelka (31) are in the autumn of their very successful careers.
The £28m rated giant forward is a lethal finisher who is as deadly on the ground as he is in the air and would be well worth the valuation placed on his shoulders by Wolfsburg.
