Maurizio Sarri is expected to be announced as the new Chelsea manager in the next few days.
The former Napoli boss has reportedly targeted Dries Mertens, José Maria Callejon, Elseid Hysaj and Raul Albiol to bolster Chelsea team ahead of his move to Stamford Bridge.
DRIES MERTENS – €28m buy-out clause (30th June 2020)
JOSE MARIA CALLEJON – €23m buy-out clause (30th June 2020)
ELSEID HYSAJ – €50m buy-out clause (contracted until 30th June 2021)
RAUL ALBIOL – €8m buy-out clause (contracted until 30th June 2020)
Chelsea are also keeping tabs on Juventus defender Daniele Rugani despite his agent recently ruled out a potential move to Stamford Bridge as “no formal offers have arrived, he is happy to be there and Juve are happy with him”.
Moreover, it is understood contacts to land Jean-Michael Seri to Stamford Bridge have been productive.
