The Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern have been insulted by the latest news reports coming from Italy.
According to Tutto Mercato Web Radio in Italy, Lazio star Ciro Immobile laughed with his agent when he heard that Chelsea had made a bid for him.
Immobile’s agent, Marco Sommella, confirmed this in an interview online.
Ciro Immobile is enjoying a fine year for Lazio but was subject to interest in the summer transfer window.
Chelsea, who were selling Diego Costa, were looking for a striker to improve on Michy Batshuayi.
They eventually landed Real Madrid’s Alvaro Morata, who has enjoyed a relatively decent start to life in the Premier League.
Immobile’s agent confirmed that they laughed when rumours emerged that there was a bid received from Chelsea, as well as one from China, but instead the Italian international put pen to paper and extended his current deal with Lazio.
So far this season, the 27-year-old has bagged a remarkable thirteen goals, and added a further three assists, in his ten Serie A appearances.
As well as that, Immobile has two goals in three substitute appearances in the Europa League and two goals in the one domestic cup match in Italy.
