'El Mago' has apparently been for dinner with sporting director Igli Tare, with the Lazio string-puller aiming to bring the Spanish player to the Italian club.
The world cup winning playmaker has appeared some 309 times for the Blues in his 10-year spell, making himself a fan favourite and a household name for football fans around the country.
Lazio have secured a Champions League spot for next season, so it comes as no surprise that they want a knowledgeable head in their camp to help guide them to European success.
If the move goes ahead it could be Silva's 14 consecutive season competing in Europe’s club competitions, and anyway, who wouldn’t want to see Silva in Europe again?
