Stamford Bridge side said to have reached deal to sign Serbian teenager.
Reports in the Serbian press claim that Chelsea have agreed a £6m deal to sign Partizan Belgrade wonderkid Lazar Markovic.

The 18 year old has been strongly linked with interest from the Stamford Bridge side and seems set to become the latest young talent brought in by Roman Abramovich as he continues to build for the future.
Markovic is considered one of the brightest young talents in Europe having impressed greatly with Partizan over the past 18 months. Last term he racked up over 30 appearances as he helped his club to a domestic title. Thus far this term he has six goals in 14 appearances to help Vladimir Vermezovic’s side to the top of the table.
Having won his first senior national team appearance aged just 17 the supporting striker has gone on to win half a dozen caps and proved himself at a higher level.
Abramovich spent over £80m last summer, bringing in the likes of Oscar, Eden Hazard, Victor Moses and Cesar Azpilicueta and with a number of the West London club’s stars nearing the end of their careers it seems clear that the Blues are looking to build a nucleus of talent that can help the club challenge for major honours.
