Chelsea are set to step up their interest in Lazio midfielder Senad Lulic, according to reports from talkSPORT.

The Blues have been linked with the Bosnian ace for some time, with the 28-year-old having been in impressive form since his 2011 move to the Stadio Olimpico from Young Boys.

Lulic enjoyed an excellent 2012/13 campaign – in which he netted the Coppa Italia final-winning goal against bitter rivals Roma – but he has had a less successful season this time around.

This has led to talk that the Serie A side are ready to cut him loose, alerting Chelsea.

The experienced star is comfortable in either a left midfield of left-back role, and is valued at around £9m.

The Blues are known to be keen to draft in a replacement for Ashley Cole, and could be attracted to Lulic’s ability to support the attack from a deep position.

As well as the Premier League leaders, Inter Milan, Juventus and a number of German clubs are also watching the talented star.

Lulic’s value may well increase this summer, as he look likely to be involved in his nation’s World Cup campaign.
