Chelsea are ready to offer Ruben Loftus-Cheek plus cash for Lazio midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, according to reports in Italy.

The 27 year old Serbian midfielder has made 20 appearances for Lazio this season, scoring five goals and making seven assists.

Milinkovic-Savic has just 18 months left on his Lazio contract and the Blues are confident the Italian side could be tempted into a sale in January.

While Loftus-Cheek has been solid for the Blues, Milinkovic-Savic is definitely going to be an upgrade on the Chelsea midfielder.

Milinkovic-Savic is going to the World Cup with Serbia with good confidence after having an impressive season with Lazio so far.
