Maurizio Sarri is eager to sign Serie A star in January

Three Italian sides are also interested in signing him

Chelsea had a busy summer as they were looking to bolster their squad after an underwhelming campaign, despite winning the FA Cup back in May. Maurizio Sarri was appointed as the new manager after Antonio Conte was sacked.

The Italian has brought players like Jorginho from Napoli, Kepa from Athletic Bilbao and Mateo Kovacic on a season long loan from Real Madrid during the summer transfer window. The Blues also managed to keep hold of key players like Eden Hazard, Willian and N’Golo Kante, as they were heavily linked with exits.

The London outfit have won all the 5 Premier League fixtures so far this season against Huddersfield, Arsenal, Newcastle United, Bournemouth and Cardiff City. They are only 1 of the 2 teams to have 100 percent record, other being Liverpool.

They have been tipped off as one of the favourites to win the Premier League title this season. However, it has been suggested they could further bolster the squad during the January transfer window to mount a genuine title challenge.

Sarri is eager to sign Fiorentina star Federico Chiesa in the January transfer window, The Sunday Express (via Sportmediaset) reports.

The 20 year old came through the academy ranks of the Serie A giants and made his senior debut for the club back in 2016. He is one of the most promising prospects in Serie A and already racked up 67 appearances in Serie A with La Viola managing 10 goals and 13 assists.

The Italy International made 36 Serie A appearances last season, scoring 6 goals and providing 5 assists.

Several Serie A giants like Inter, Juventus and Napoli have also set their sights on the talented winger. He has already been subject to a £50 million bid from the Turin Sidewhich was turned down in the summer.
