The 59 year old was appointed as the new manager last month
Chelsea made a slow start in the transfer window as they wanted to sort their managerial situation first. Maurizio Sarri was appointed as club’s new manager back in July after Antonio Conte was sacked despite his contract expiring next summer.
The 59 year old raided his former club Napoli to secure the signing of midfielder Jorginho, who became the Blue’s first signing this summer. The Italy International was close to joining Manchester City but his former manager persuaded him to move to Stamford Bridge.
The Premier League giants completed the signing of midfielder Mateo Kovacic from Real Madrid on a season long loan without any buy option. He was part of a deal which saw Thibaut Courtois going the other way for €35 million, as the Belgium International forced a move to the Spanish Capital in order to stay close with his children.
They also completed the signing of young Spanish goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga from Athletic Bilbao after activating his €80 million release clause, making him the world’s most expensive goalkeeper breaking the record set by Liverpool for buying Alisson Becker last month.
The Italian got off to a perfect start as the London outfit defeated Huddersfield 3-0 which was secured courtesy of goals from N’Golo Kante, debutant Jorginho and Pedro.
Chelsea defender Cesar Azpilicueta has revealed that all the players are working to fulfill Sarri’s wishes.
He told BBC Sport: “We have been working really hard with him.
“He knows what he wants and our target was to start really well which we have done and now we must get ready for Arsenal.
“Our signings have been very good, adapting very quickly to the team and being comfortable in the team and we have a very good squad.”
