Chelsea have been given hope in landing Lazio star Senad Lulic in the summer.
The Bosnian midfielder is attracting interest from several big clubs across Europe, including west Londoners Chelsea.
The Stamford Bridge outfit will face competition from several clubs in Serie A, including Juventus, as well as clubs in Germany, according to a report in Le10 Sport.
Lulic, 28, joined Rome club Lazio in 2011, signing for £3 million from Young Boys Berne.
The Bosnian international has scored twice in 21 league appearances for Lazio this season and has played in the Europa League.
Lulic is expected to leave the Stadio Olmpico this summer, despite having a contract until 2017, and will fetch a fee of around £8 million.
As quoted on the SportsDirectNews website, he said: “Now I keep thinking about playing in this shirt, there are still two months under the end of the season. Then, at the end of the season, you’ll see.”
