According to The Secret Scout, Chelsea wants to finalize a deal for FK IMT forward Milos Lukovic before loaning him to Strasbourg.

The owner of the Serbian SuperLiga club was recently visited by the Blues recruitment team, who took a plane to Serbia to have discussions with him.

IMT has turned down Chelsea’s initial £4 million offer, stating that they require a part of the sale price to be included in the agreement.

Lukovic has scored ten goals in 19 games this season, demonstrating his excellent play.
With Nicolas Jackson failing in front of goal lately, Chelsea could really use a strong finisher. However, the 18-year-old hasn’t proven himself in a major league yet, so a loan to Ligue 1 may be extremely beneficial to his development.

With 15 league goals in the Serbian First League last season, the Serbian youth international made an impression, and it seems the Blues are certain he has what it takes to be a major player for them soon.

Since the Ivorian great departed the club, Chelsea has been aching for a striker in the vein of Didier Drogba, and the 6’3 Lukovic may be the solution.

Although it’s unclear if the team will make any new additions this month, manager Mauricio Pochettino may use one or two elite players to help improve their fortunes in the second half of the season.

After 20 games, Chelsea is in 10th place in the Premier League, 12 points clear of the top four.

They triumphed in back-to-back league games over the Christmas break for the second time this season, and they will be eager to keep up the winning streak against Middlesbrough in the Carabao Cup semi-final first-leg and Preston North End in the FA Cup third round during their upcoming two games.
