Chelsea have made £70million-rated Lazio midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic their priority signing if their transfer ban is lifted according to the Mirror.

Blues scouts watched Milinkovic-Savic in their Europa League match at Celtic with Frank Lampard considering the Serbian midfielder as his 'heir'.

The London club are likely to make a move for the 24-year-old in January if their transfer embargo has been lifted.

In the past, Lazio president Claudio Lotito has refused offers approaching €100million for the player he regards as the 'sergeant' of the side.

Lampard regards Milinkovic-Savic as a similar midfield player to himself, due to his technical abilities and eye for goal.

He could play Milinkovic-Savic with licence to push forward in the knowledge that N'Golo Kante could cover for him defensively.

A classic box-to-box midfielder because of his strong physique, physicality and speed, it isn't hard to see why Lampard regards him so highly.
