chelsea targets

Reports from Corriere dello Sport suggest that Chelsea officials are in Italy to discuss a number of deals with both Juventus and Milan. The Blues have been linked with a number of players from the Serie A following the arrival of Maurizio Sarri. The former Napoli boss has reportedly identified some key targets from the Serie A which he believes can help Chelsea adapt to his style and improve on last season’s fifth-place finish.

The report claims that the officials will discuss potential deals with Juventus and Milan. They will discuss the possible signing of Daniele Rugani, Gonzalo Higuain, and Miralem Pjanic in their dealings with Juventus.

Higuain is set to leave Turin and Chelsea will face competition from AC Milan for the Argentine forward. Sarri has also been an admirer of Rugani whose move to Chelsea is very close according to reports. A deal can be done if the Old Ladies find a replacement as the likes of Leonardo Bonucci and Diego Godin have been mentioned. However, Chelsea will have to part with a fortune close to €100m to prise Pjanic away from the Old Ladies.

The report also suggests that Chelsea will discuss with Milan on the possible sale of Alvaro Morata, as the Milan club have reportedly expressed interest in the Spaniard who is believed to be keen on a move away from Chelsea.
