Sky in Italy reported on Wednesday that Chelsea and Roma had agreed a deal for Dzeko to move to Stamford Bridge, and that it was now down to the Premier League side to agree terms with the player.
However, Roma sporting director Monchi has now contradicted those claims, saying: "At this moment I don't like the offers that we have received, so we do not take them into consideration.
"All the clubs in the world listen to the offers that come, we are ready to listen and then decide.
"Now Edin is here and we are happy. This means that what arrived [bids] was not good."
