  Lazio drop asking price for Chelsea target Milinkovic-Savic Lazio are reportedly ready to drop their asking price of Chelsea target Sergej Milinkovic-Savic according to Corriere Dello Sport via InsideFutbol. The Italian side have been asking for a high fee for the Serbian midfielder, who has been in high demand this Summer with multiple clubs including Chelsea and Manchester United interested in signing him. However, Lazio are now prepared to lower their 150 million asking price for the midfielder, with the Italian now ready to accept a bid of €120 million for the Serbian.

Chelsea are firmly in the race for Milinkovic-Savic however and could be tempted to make an offer due to the reduction in price.

Read Madrid eye move for Christian Pulisic instead of Eden Hazard .
Real Madrid have reportedly made an enquiry over a possible deal to sign Chelsea and Liverpool target Christian Pulisic. The Daily Mail claim that the La Liga giants have earmarked the American winger as a potential transfer target. Madrid could turn their attention to Pulisic as an alternative to Eden Hazard, with Chelsea digging their heels in over a deal to sell the Belgian this summer. Chelsea and Liverpool have both been heavily linked with a move for the American previously, with Jurgen Klopp a known admirer of the player. Chelsea themselves reportedly consider the winger as a potential replacement for Hazard, should he leave for Madrid. Bayern Munich have also kept tabs on Pulisic for some time and want him to replace either Arjen Robben or Franck Ribery, but they now face added competition. Real will be hoping that the good relations between the two clubs will boost their chances of completing a deal for Pulisic.
