Chelsea tracking Lazio midfielder

Published Add your comment

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho is tracking Lazio star Senad Lulic as he considers his targets for the January transfer window.

According to Portuguese newspaper A Bola, the 27-year-old Lazio midfielder is one of several targets for the Chelsea boss as he looks to strengthen his squad for a title push in the New Year.

Lulic, and Bosnia and Herzegovina international, signed for Lazio for around €3m in 2010 from Swiss club Young Boys and he's impressed in the Italian top flight.

He's been a key first-team player for the Rome-based club since his move, and has made seven appearances in the league already this season.

Lulic can play left-back, left-midfield or central midfield - and his versatility could be an important reason for Mourinho's interest in the player.

The Chelsea boss has been linked with several full-backs, including Southampton's Luke Shaw, Wolfsburg's Ricardo Rodriguez and Bayern Munich's Philipp Lahm.

Ashley Cole is typically first-choice but has not featured since he was dropped following the 2-0 defeat to Newcastle last month.
