Liverpool striker target reveals Chelsea 'dream'

Partizan Belgrade striker Lazar Markovic is being tempted by a move to Chelsea

The 17-year-old has been linked with the likes of Liverpool, one of a myriad of clubs reportedly interested in his services.

But while the froward may be flattered by all the interest from Europe, he had his heart set on a move to the Premier League.

"I really hope I can go to Chelsea, it's my dream," he said.

"I'm told there were 20 scouts from all over Europe in the VIP box when we beat Red Star.

"But Chelsea is the place I want to play. I had all the pictures of the team on my wall at home back to when they had Gianfranco Zola.

"And any time they are on TV I try to watch them. For me Chelsea are the best. I want to go to the Premier League. It is the best league in the world."

Markovic wouldn't be the first player to snub the advances of Liverpool and move to Stamford Bridge, with David Luiz moving to west London in the January transfer window.

Liverpool and Chelsea are expected to be in contention for a Champions League spot, and any advantage either can get in the transfer market could prove to be decisive come the end of the season.
