Chelsea desperate to complete signing of 290-goal striker from European giants

As you can understand, I cannot tell you where [we need to strengthen].

Sarri's transition into life in the Premier League has been tough. "My opinion is important for the club, but I can not tell you my opinion".

"I think that it is not professional because they are talking about a player under contract with Chelsea, so they didn't respect our club", he said. "I think that is normal because in a club you have time to organise a team, but in the national team you have no time so it is very hard to see an organised team in the Euros or World Cup".

The Blues looks set to lose experienced midfielder Cesc Fabregas to Monaco soon and Sarri has already stated that he would like to sign a player to replace the Spain worldwide.

"Then it depends on the club decision".

The Premier League kicks off 2019 with a trio of games on Tuesday. I was pleased we didn't just fold in the second half'. After 20 games, Spurs are again third in the table.

Head coach Sarri wants the Blues to bring in striker Higuain, who played under him at Napoli and is now on a season-long loan at AC Milan from Juventus. "I don't know anything about the market day by day or minute by minute". "But I don't need an important player like Cesc unhappy here".

"Of course, if Morata will go to another club we need a replacement, it's normal", Sarri said.

Maurizio Sarri has said he did not watch a single World Cup match this summer because he does not believe there is anything to learn from worldwide football.

Meanwhile, Sarri also shot down rumours this week that winger Willian could move to Barcelona.

"Hasan Salihamidzic: 'He is a very interesting player we really want to sign", he told German newspaper Bild during a winter training camp in Doha. "So I think he has to think only about playing because in this moment in Europe there are 300 players involved in the market and they need to think of the next match".
