Lazio linked with surprise move for Ruben Loftus-Cheek

It’s no secret that Lazio are interested in Chelsea’s midfielder. But who isn’t?

According to the football transfer rumours in Italian media, Lazio are linked with surprise move for Ruben Loftus-Cheek.

The 26-year-old’s contract at Chelsea is set to expire at the end of the 2023/24 campaign. The midfielder has featured in 31 matches this term, providing four assists in all competitions.

He is considered to be one of the best midfielders in England. Loftus-Cheek has earned 10 senior caps for the England national team but is yet to open his goal-scoring account for his nation.

His performances have seen him become the target of many European clubs including Lazio.

Maurizio Sarri wants to sign a new midfielder and Loftus-Cheek is one of the names at the top of his wishlist. Sarri is a firm fan of Chelsea midfielder and Lazio could make a move for the player if the financial aspect makes sense.


The 26-year-old has the talent to play many roles in midfield. He has the quality and the experience to make an immediate impact.

According to the report, “Chelsea midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek is emerging as a surprise target for Lazio. The England star has been in and out of the Blues team under Thomas Tuchel this season. While Loftus-Cheek is in Chelsea’s plans, the all-action star may believe he can get more game time elsewhere. According to Corriere dello Sport, ex-Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri believes that Loftus-Cheek can offer a lot in Serie A. He is targeting the midfielder for Lazio, who may be looking to replace star midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic in the summer. There is no suggestion about how much Chelsea would look to recoup for Loftus-Cheek, or if Lazio would attempt to secure him via a one-year loan deal.”

Considering they don’t have a big budget, Lazio will have to be smart with the signings in the transfer window.

If Lazio can tie up a cheap deal for the player, it may not be a bad signing by any means.

Good signing for Lazio?

Ruben Loftus-Cheek has all the skillset required to be a success story at Lazio. Therefore, it makes sense for Maurizio Sarri to step up his attempts to bring the England midfielder to Serie A side.

Stylistically, he would be a great fit in Rome.

How strong that interest is and whether Lazio will make a move remains to be seen but it is certainly one worth keeping an eye on.
