daniele rugani

Reports from Italy from the reliable transfer journalist Alfredo Pedulla through Sportitalia suggest that Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich is in Milan to meet with Juventus in an attempt to seal a deal to bring Daniele Rugani to Chelsea.

Rugani has been linked with a move away from Turin with Chelsea being reported to be interested in his signature. This development is coming as Andrea Barzagli and Giorgio Chiellini have signed contract extensions at Juventus to extend their stay with the Old Ladies.

Roman Abramovich will also be looking to speed up arrangements to acquire Argentina striker Gonzalo Higuain. However, this might only materialize if the club offloads Morata, with AC Milan being mentioned as a possible destination.

Sarri is working to bring his desired Serie A targets to Stamford Bridge as he looks to set up a familiar team, after taking over from Conte with an eye for success in the Premier League and other major competitions.
