Chelsea have reportedly struck a £50million deal to sign Roma duo Edin Dzeko and Emerson Palmieri.
The Mirror claims Antonio Conte will be able to reinforce his squad with the talented pair this month after a breakthrough in negotiations.
Left-back Palmieri has already agreed a contract with the champions and is set to provide competition for Marcos Alonso, with youngster Kenedy to join Newcastle on loan for the remainder of the season.
Dzeko is yet to pen a deal after initial reserves about playing second fiddle to Alvaro Morata.
But Conte has apparently told the former Manchester City star that he has a big role to play at Stamford Bridge.
And the Bosnia international is now set to arrive in London to finalise terms with the Blues.
Dzeko will turn 32 in March and his arrival raises questions over the future of Michy Batshuayi.

The Belgian is wanted by Sevilla and Borussia Dortmund, and may decide the time is right to try his luck elsewhere.
The double swoop should spell the end of Conte’s winter shopping, with the Italian landing Ross Barkley from Everton earlier in the window.
