Well here’s a name we haven’t heard in a long time…
Sergej Milinkovic-Savic was once a player who was linked with Chelsea in every window, but in recent years he’s fallen off the radar a little.
According to SportWitness‘ translated quotes from Italy, he’s now back on the radar – and not just vaguely. They say that Lazio sent their people to have talks with various English clubs in London, with his meeting with Chelsea focused on their interest in the Serbian midfielder.
The Roman side don’t want to sell him, but understand that if there is a “top offer” they can’t really hold on to him.
Interestingly, the Laziali have been heavily linked with Chelsea’s own hyphenated dynamic central midfielder, Ruben Loftus-Cheek.
Could a player swap of some form be on the cards? SMS’s price is apparently likely to be around €55m to €60m, and Chelsea could knock a big chunk off that by including Ruben Loftus-Cheek.
