Chelsea And Liverpool To Fight Over Lazio's Aleksandar Kolarov

Lazio star 'flattered by interest' from English clubs...

Chelsea and Liverpool are tracking Lazio full-back Aleksandar Kolarov, and may enter into a transfer bidding war to secure the player in the summer, according to reports from Italy.

Kolarov has established himself with a string of good performances this campaign for the Rome club, who are thought to be looking at rebuilding their squad this summer after a poor season.

With Lazio hovering around Serie A's relegation zone, Kolarov looks almost certain to be sold in the summer to raise cash for some new signings - whether or not the club go down.

But the Serbian international said the reports of interest from Chelsea and Liverpool, as well as Italian and Spanish table-toppers Inter Milan and Real Madrid, will not distract him.

"I find that different clubs are interested in me every day when I open the newspapers," Kolarov is quoted as saying on Italian website Tuttomercatoweb.com

"The interest from Real Madrid, Liverpool and Inter cannot but flatter me.

"However, so far there has never been anything concrete."
