Antonio Conte

Chelsea have suffered a major blow in their pursuit of Lazio midfielder Sergey Milinkovic-Savic, report Team Talk.

As Team Talk report, Milinokivic-Savic is represented by former Chelsea striker Adrian Mutu, who left Stamford Bridge soon after his arrival following a failed drugs test.

Now an agent, Team Talk report that Mutu has revealed that he has received offers for his client in the region of €50M.

However, the Romanian goes on to note that Milinokivic-Savic is happy at Lazio and will help the Serie A giants compete both domestically and in the Champions League next season.

As per Team Talk, Chelsea are not the only Premier League side interested in signing Milinokivic-Savic. It is reported that Liverpool are also interested in securing his signature.

However, if Mutu is to be believed, it looks as though he is going nowhere this summer, and both Antonio Conte and Jurgen Klopp will have to look elsewhere in their respective pursuits of midfield reinforcements.
