Move called off
As per Daily Star, the proposed transfer for the 31-year-old striker to sign for Chelsea this New Year has fallen through after talks between the two teams broke down.
The same article says that it was believed that a transfer fee had been agreed on between the two sides and that the personal contract terms were the major stumbling block.

Chelsea plan to reinforce
The Blues have been linked heavily with a transfer for Edin Dzeko this window as manager Antonio Conte looks to reinforce his attacking line before the transfer deadline.
