Chelsea, Six Sports

The 27-year-old Sergej Milnkovic-Savic has been at the center of a frenzy of speculation. A lot of clubs have expressed their interest in the services of the midfielder. Chelsea, Manchester United, Real Madrid, Paris Saint-Germain, and Newcastle United are a few of the clubs interested in the midfielder.

Now, according to Corriere Dello Sport, Chelsea have shown a genuine interest in signing the midfielder. Thomas Tuchel’s side is thinking of making an offer for him in the transfer window.

Lazio wants Chelsea duo Emerson And Loftus-Cheek

Lazio are keen on signing left-back Emerson Palmieri and midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek. Emerson is currently on a loan at Lyon. Ruben Loftus-Cheek is at Chelsea and has thrived under Thomas Tuchel.

Consequently, this puts Chelsea in a strong position. Chelsea can negotiate a potential swap deal with Lazio.

Milinkovic Savic is “heading out of Italy”, if at all

The Serb was fantastic for Lazio during the 2021-22 season. He scored 11 goals for the Italian team. Milinkovic-Savic also came up with 12 assists in 47 appearances.

The Serb still has two years left on his contract. Despite that, he is open to transfers to other clubs this summer.

Juventus have also expressed their desire for the midfielder. However, Lazio head coach Maurizio Sarii doesn’t think Milinkovic is going to Juventus this summer. Sarri has insisted that the Serb “will not remain” in Italy this summer if he departs this summer.

Speaking to Goal Sarri said

“Speaking to the president, I have become convinced that if Milinkovic does leave, and that will not happen easily, he will not remain in Italy,” 

However, Lazio president Claudio Lotito has said that the midfielder is not for sale. But, he does admit that a bid from a world-class club would be considered.

The Midfielder has scored 58 goals and 51 assists in 294 appearances for the club. Chelsea will be hoping that he brings this consistency to them.

Speculations about the future of Jorginho and Kante at Chelsea

Rumors have been running wild about the midfielder duo’s future at Chelsea. Rumors of Manchester United considering a swoop for Kante grows stronger each day.

In these trying times, it’s no wonder that Tuchel is trying to strengthen the middle. It seems as though he is trying to boost his midfield as much as he can for the 2022-23 campaign

Chelsea also have been pursuing Robert Lewandowski. But it is a futile cause now as the Polish striker is intent on joining Barcelona this summer.
