Maurizio Sarri Confirms He Wants Two New Players At Chelsea This January

Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri would like to bring in two new players this January but he refused to be drawn on his top targets.

On Saturday, Chelsea welcome Newcastle United to Stamford Bridge but the speculation today has been all about the future of Willian who has been linked with a move to Barcelona.

The Blues have been linked repeatedly for a move with Argentinian striker Gonzalo Higuain, the Juventus striker who is currently on loan at AC Milan. He's a player Sarri knows well having worked with him at Napoli and the club are known to be on the lookout for a new striker to replace Alvaro Morata who appears to be reaching the end of his time with Sarri. 

Chelsea are also on the trail of Cagliari midfielder Nicolo Barella but Sarri was typically tight-lipped when asked about potential targets.

He told a press conference today: "As you know very well I am not in control of the transfer market. In my opinion we need two players, but then it is up to the club.”

Asked where he felt Chelsea needed reinforcements, Sarri said: "As you can understand, I cannot tell you where. The club knows my opinion. My opinion is important for the club, but I cannot tell you my opinion.”

Sarri also confirmed that Cesc Fabregas was leaving Chelsea - he is expected to link up with his former team-mate Thierry Henry at Monaco.

"Of course if he was to go to another club then we need a replacement," he said. "But at the moment he is here, he has to think only to play."
