​Agent confirms Lazio boss Sarri keen on Chelsea midfielder Loftus-Cheek

Chelsea midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek's agent says there is real interest in his client from Italy.

The central midfielder, who plays a box to box role, is being linked with a move to Lazio.

The 26-year-old is on the fringes of the Blues first team, and may be up for sale to raise funds for incoming transfers this summer.

"Lazio have not spoken to Chelsea as far as I'm aware, but Maurizio Sarri [Lazio manager] is a fan of Ruben [Loftus-Cheek] and he likes Serie A," the player's agent Jonathan Barnett told II Messaggero, via Metro.

"Let's see what happens."
