Agent talks up Sarri and Lazio for Chelsea midfielder Loftus-Cheek

The agent of Chelsea midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek has opened the door to a move to Lazio.

He had been linked with a move to Lazio last summer following the appointment of former manager Maurizio Sarri, although a move failed to materialise.

Loftus-Cheek, who has previously struggled for consistency amid a number of injury problems, would go on to make 40 appearances across all competitions under Thomas Tuchel last season.

Still, the England international is now into the final two years of his contract at Stamford Bridge, presenting the club with a decision to make.

Speaking to Il Messaggero, agent Jonathan Barnett said: “Lazio have not spoken to Chelsea as far as I'm aware.

“But Maurizio Sarri is a fan of Ruben [Loftus-Cheek] and he likes Serie A. Let's see what happens."
