Lazar Markovic: The Chelsea target is expected to stay in Belgrade until the sum

The 18-year-old Serbian star is rated in the region of £10million and could be a target of the Premier League giants in the January transfer window.

However, there are reportedly a number of other top sides, including Liverpool, Arsenal and Inter Milan, all interested in the player after an impressive six goals in 12 games this season.

Djuric though, is hopeful that the midfielder, who scored in a friendly for his country against Chile last month, will remain at the club for now.

He told Serbian newspaper Novisti: "Until now nobody has come to us with a concrete offer for Markovic.

"It is true that there are many clubs that are interested in him but as things stand right now.

"He will stay with us until the end of the season for sure and then in June, we will see what happens."
