Ruben Loftus-Cheek is a target for Lazio in the summer transfer window.
According to the football transfer rumours in British media, Lazio will look to sign Chelsea midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek.
The 24-year-old has been subject to interest from various European clubs.
In 72 appearances for Chelsea, Loftus-Cheek has managed to score 12 goals, and create 10 goals for his teammates.
He’s incredibly experienced for a 24-year-old and still has tons of room for growth.
Ruben Loftus-Cheek has represented England at Under-16, Under-17, Under-19 and Under-21 level, winning 38 caps and scoring 15 goals, before making his senior international debut in November 2017. As a member of England national football team, Loftus-Cheek won 10 caps.
The England international is believed to be available for transfer, with Simone Inzaghi now keen to bring him to Lazio.
Lazio have built a reputation for recruiting young talent from within Europe, predominantly targeting those with sell-on value and immense potential.
Inzaghi is a known admirer of the player and is reportedly keen on the idea of bringing him this summer.
Lazio are in the market for just a handful of statement signings who can improve the first-team.
Ruben Loftus-Cheek would provide a good variety to Lazio’s midfield.
According to the report, “Lazio are set to target Chelsea midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek this summer. Simone Inzaghi’s side have surprised Serie A this season, currently sitting in second behind Juventus. In preparation for a likely Champions League campaign next season, Inzaghi wants to bolster his squad. And Il Messaggero says the Italian likes the look of Loftus-Cheek. The versatile midfielder has been sidelined for 12 months with an Achilles injury, but is still highly rated at Stamford Bridge. The report claims £17.5m would be enough for Lazio to sign the 24-year-old.”
