Chelsea have a potential advantage over any other interested suitors in the race to sign Lazio midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic.
Milinkovic-Savic’s meteoric rise in Rome after the past few seasons has got the world talking. He’s gone from being a relatively unknown midfielder to a household name in virtually no time at all.
According to the BBC, Milinkovic-Savic’s stellar performances for Lazio have got some of Europe’s biggest sides licking their lips. If Premier League champions Chelsea are among the interested parties, we may well have an edge over our competitors.
That is, as the BBC report, because Milinkovic-Savic’s agent is former Chelsea striker Mateja Kezman. Kezman may well have been unable to replicate his best performances in a Chelsea shirt, but the title-winning campaign he spent here may well mean that his blood still runs Blue.
It’s a long shot, but we can hope. Milinkovic-Savic would be the perfect partner for N’Golo Kante in the middle of the park. It’s becoming clearer as the weeks pass that Tiemoue Bakayoko is NOT that man.
