Sarri identifies five signings for Chelsea

Kalidou Koulibaly Senegal 2018

Whether Sarri will be handed a larger budget remains to be seen, but speculation is already suggesting that Juventus defender Daniel Rugani, who worked under Sarri for two years at Empoli, will be his first signing at the club.

The report suggests that the 59-year-old will receive a three-year contract on wages of €6m (£5.3m) per season.

Maurizio Sarri's protracted move to Chelsea seems to be moving closer to completion, and the Italian coach wants his soon to be new club to fork out £140milliom on five transfer targets.

The same article states that the former Napoli boss will have to convince Chelsea FC to part with a transfer fee in the region of £88m to sign the Senegal global.


Former Chelsea boss Antonio Conte also tried to bring the Senegal star to Chelsea in 2016, albeit for the more modest sum of €50m, but the bid was rejected.

Earlier, NAIJ.com had reported how incoming Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri reportedly informed the Blues chiefs to make Argentina worldwide Gonzalo Higuain their first signing.

The Mirror reports that the prospective new Chelsea manager even plans to live at the club's training base at Cobham in Surrey.

Although we have the Europa League to compete in, the Premier League should be our primary focus and if Sarri can do a similar job to what Conte did in his first season with us, we just might have something to celebrate at the end of the campaign.
