English premier league giant Chelsea are ready to offer €70 million for Lazio star midfielder Serg Milikovic-Savic. The Serbian has been in good form since joining the Rome outfit in 2015.
Serg, 24, is considered one of the best midfielder in Serie A, and domestic giant like, inter Milan and Juventus have also been linked with the player. He is also attracting interest around Europe as La Liga giants Real Madrid have also indicated an interest in the player.
Chelsea who were banned from signing players for two transfer windows for signing minors from abroad, got their sanction halved at the Court of Arbitration for Sport last December and they have also registered an interest in signing Milinkovic-Savic and are willing to offer as much as €70 million to acquire his services in the summer of 2020.
Chelsea were unable to add any new arrival in the January transfer window much to the frustration of manager Frank Lampard. The manager stated that his side is now at disadvantage among other clubs vying for champions league qualifications.
The Serbia international has been with the Biancocelesti since the summer of 2015 when he joined them from a Belgian club KRC Genk for a reported fee of €18 million.
