Report: Chelsea Offered The Chance To Sign Lazio Midfielder Milinkovic-Savic

Chelsea have the opportunity to sign Serbian international Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, according to reports.

The 27-year-old has been linked to a whole host of teams around Europe over the last few years, however, he has remained in Italy the whole time.

Now might be the time for the midfielder to make the move to England and explore a new challenge.

Milinkovic-Savic joined Lazio in 2015 and has made 294 appearances, whilst winning three major titles. He has scored 58 goals, playing on the right hand side of a midfield three.

Milinkovic-Savic would join Mateo Kovacic, N'Golo Kante, Jorginho and Ruben Loftus-Cheek in the middle of the park at Stamford Bridge. In Thomas Tuchel's 3-4-3 system, there is room for only two of these players.
