Reports in Italy claims the Blues and Reading are showing interest in Genoa winger Manuel Milinkovic.
The 24-year old winger spent last season on loan at Scottish top flight club Hearts, where he scored six goals in 26 games.
The Jambos have had an offer accepted to make the move permanent, but reports in Italy say Milinkovic is not entirely sold on a return to Scotland
Genoa have been said to want £600,000 for his services, although reports in Scotland suggest Hearts’ bid has not reached that valuation.
Since signing for Genoa in the 2015-16 season, Milinkovic has had loan spells at Virtus Lanciano, Messina, and Foggia, but he is yet to make a first team appearance for Genoa.
