Chelsea eyeing move for 24-year-old Serie A midfielder

By | February 17, 2020

Chelsea are in the mix for the services of Lazio midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic in the summer transfer market.

The club have started their summer shopping early this year and have already secured the services of winger Hakim Ziyech for a fee of €40 million from Ajax.

They haven’t spent any money in the last two markets and that has left Chelsea with a considerable kitty for recruiting players at the end of the term.

Frank Lampard is understood to be eyeing midfield reinforcements and are considering launching a move for the player in Serie A in the summer.

According to an Italian website FcInterNews.it, the Blues are in the transfer chase for Biancocelesti midfielder Milinkovic-Savic.

The Serbian has long been mentioned with a move away from Lazio and several sides are again expected to try and snap him up in the summer.

Chelsea have a good relationship with his entourage Mateja Kezman, who is a former Chelsea, and are hopeful of leveraging the relationship to land the midfielder.

Sergej has also been identified by Nerazzurri as one of their potential signings during the summer transfer market.

Paris Saint-Germain failed with a €60 million bid for the Serbian last summer transfer window and could rekindle their long-term interest in him in the coming months.

In other news, Chelsea have reportedly been scouting Hellas Verona centre-back Marash Kumbulla in the latest weeks ahead of a potential bid during this summer’s transfer period.

The 20-year-old, who has netted once in 18 appearances for Verona this term, is allegedly a transfer target for both Manchester City and Manchester United.
