Chelsea contacted over Loftus-Cheek by Lazio as former boss Sarri wants him to replace Man Utd target Milinkovic-Savic

RUBEN LOFTUS-CHEEK could be a step closer to replacing Manchester United target Sergej Milinkovic-Savic at Lazio.

The Italians have reportedly opened talks with Chelsea as ex-Blues’ boss Maurizio Sarri wants to reunite with midfielder Loftus-Cheek.

Lazio are resigned to losing £60million-rated Serbia superstar Milinkovic-Savic as Euro giants like United, PSG and Juventus hover.

And Loftus-Cheek’s recent revival at Stamford Bridge has heightened Sarri’s interest.

Lazio are thought to be eyeing a season’s loan for the 26-year-old with an option to buy in 2023.

But that could change if Sarri can sort out a summer clear-out at his seventh-placed Serie A club.

Jose Mourinho’s Roma, Everton and West Ham are also being linked with the ten-cap England ace.

And after he hit the opener in Sunday’s 2-0 FA Cup semi-final win over Crystal Palace, Eagles chairman Steve Parish suggested they too could come on for their ex-loanee.

Palace are even keener to keep fellow Blues midfielder Conor Gallagher next term – even if it’s only a renewed loan deal.

But it’s also claimed Loftus-Cheek believes his improved run in the side could signal he still has a Stamford Bridge future.

And he started in Wednesday night’s Prem thriller against Arsenal.

But his verdict might rest on how he fares under Thomas Tuchel for the remainder of the season.

Loftus-Cheek said after the weekend: “I feel like when I’ve had a consistent amount of games I’ve flourished.

“Like the Palace season and with Maurizio Sarri. I feel like the manager trusts me which gives me a lot of confidence, playing me against Real Madrid and bringing me on in the semi-final.

“That says a lot. I’m grateful to be in this position. Now we have to kick on.”
