Blues have been heavily linked with a move for him in recent weeks
Chelsea are expected to overhaul their side this summer after an underwhelming campaign last season. They finished 5th in the league and will miss the Champions League in the upcoming season.
Though Blues ended the campaign on a bright note after defeating Manchester United in the FA Cup final. But they need reinforcements in key areas to compete for Silverware in the upcoming season.
They have been behind in the transfer window compared to other Premier League rivals as they are still yet to clarify their managerial situation. Antonio Conte remains the head coach despite being heavily linked with a summer exit.
But the English side feel confident that they will land former Napoli boss Maurizio Sarri and want to provide him with new additions. They have accelerated their transfer plans this week after direct talks with the 59 year old.
Chelsea have reportedly completed their first major signing of this summer’s transfer window by bringing Juventus defender Daniele Rugani to the club for €40 million, according to SportMediaSet as quoted by thesportsman.
The Premier League giants have been linked with a move for in recent weeks and it is believed the official announcement will be followed when the managerial situation is sorted.
The 23 year old made his debut for the club in 2015 and has impressed with the limited game-time he got. He has been trying to nail down a spot in the first team but has seen his playing time increase over the past year, making 26 appearances in all competitions.
With seven caps already under his belt for the national side and having represented them at every level since u17, the Italy International certainly has the pedigree to be a world class defender. At such a young age he also can grow and reach his massive potential in England.
Sarri even tried to sign him for the Partenopei but the Serie A champions blocked the transfer, who is regarded as one of the most promising and talented centre-backs of his generation.
