Lopez’s Blues transfer a step nearer
By Arthur Dodds

Lazio striker Claudio Lopez is moving ever closer to becoming a Chelsea player.

Blues boss Claudio Ranieri is apparently negotiating with Lopez’s agent, and unless Atletico Madrid can match Chelsea’s offer the Argentinian is almost certainly Stamford Bridge bound.

“El Piojo” is certainly surplus to requirements at the Roman club, who are keen to trim their heavy wage bill; and they will be happy with the £15m transfer fee, even though it means a loss of £7m on their 2 year investment.

The 27-year-old Argentinian international may prefer to move to Atletico Madrid, as after some enjoyable years in Spain with Valencia, perhaps Lopez will be keen to return to La Liga.
