Lazio midfield star Sergej Milinkovic-Savic Chelsea's top January target

Lazio midfield star Sergej Milinkovic-Savic is a top target for Chelsea.

The Mirror says Chelsea manager Frank Lampard has made £70million-rated Milinkovic-Savic a priority signing if the club's transfer ban is lifted.

Stamford Bridge officials are confident that the club's two transfer window will be reduced to one when the court of arbitration for sport hears their appeal on November 20th.

Having already been denied signing any players in the summer window, Chelsea will be able to do business in January - if the ruling goes their way.

And Serbian international Savic, who has also been on Manchester United 's radar, is high up on Lampard's wanted list, according to Chelsea sources.

The 24-year-old 6ft 3in player who helped Lazio win the Coppa Italia last season would offer Lampard more options in the midfield area in addition to greater experience to dove tail with some of the younger stars.
