Chelsea have reportedly compiled a six-man shortlist of potential summer transfer targets.
With Maurizio Sarri set to take charge of Chelsea, we can finally think about getting to work in the transfer market.
Marina Granovskaia will no longer be pre-occupied trying to convince Aurelio De Laurentiis to release Sarri on the cheap.
With Liverpool signing Fabinho, Manchester United bagging Fred and Manchester City on the verge of recruiting Riyad Mahrez and Jorginho – Chelsea have work to do.
We were already some way behind our rivals last term, hence why we finished fifth. We can’t afford to fall any further behind.
Sarri will undoubtedly have talked transfers before agreeing to replace Antonio Conte as Chelsea manager. He’ll have ensured he’ll have money to play with.
If the Express are to be believed, Chelsea are set to fully back their manager in the transfer market.
It’s claimed a six-man shortlist has been compiled; Daniele Rugani, Elseid Hysaj, Kostas Manolas, Matias Vecino, Robert Lewandowski and Jean Michael Seri.
On paper, all six would be worthy additions. It’s incredibly unlikely that we’ll see the lot of them arrive, but it’s great that we’re showing some ambition in the market.
