The Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern think that Antonio Conte would be wise to sign a new midfielder this summer…
However, it appears as though the Italian is one step ahead – with ClubCall reporting that Chelsea are amongst the clubs keen on a summer move for Sergej Milinkovic-Savic. Any deal may be tough to come by, though, with a host of clubs reportedly interested in his signature.
Indeed, the Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern are pretty pleased with this. Whilst the Blues have done well this year, the return of the Champions League next season is likely to demand a larger playing squad – and Savic would serve as an excellent option for additional depth for Antonio Conte going forward.
Scorer of 4 goals alongside 4 assists this season, the midfielder has done well as an attacker for Lazio, largely plying his trade in the heart of the midfield.
From Chelsea’s end, the Blues aren’t exactly blessed with attacking midfielders that can play across the midfield, with Cesc Fabregas really the only option alongside N’Golo Kante. Savic would certainly serve to plug that gap, should Conte deem it necessary.
