Stamford Bridge side target in-form Lazio man.
Lazio are preparing to offer midfielder Senad Lulic a new deal as they look to ward off interest from Chelsea and Bayern Munich.
But Lazio, who are currently third in Serie A and harbouring ambitions of securing their first league crown since 2000, are desperate to retain Lulic.
Whilst Senad Lulic is hardly a household name the Bosnian international has been mighty impressive for Lazio this term, helping the Stadio Olimpico side to start their Serie A campaign strongly.
Roberto Di Matteo may indeed have a wealth of midfield options the Italian is clearly one of many sides who feel that the former Young Boys star has a great deal to offer. Bayern Munich are apparently weighing up a January move for the Mostar born midfielder and the Blues may well choose to enter the race at the same juncture.
Lazio paid just £2.4m for Lulic in the summer of 2011 and may command a far heftier figure for the 26 year old now.
