Maurizio Sarri may have left Chelsea, but he’s still got his eyes on some of the Blues’ top players, according to tabloids like the Daily Express.
They say that three of our players are on his radar, two of them from the same position. Frankly, it doesn’t sound too plausible at all. Willian is likely to be a popular target this summer for sure, but we’re not sure Frank Lampard will have any interest in letting him go before then.
The other two named are Marcos Alonso and Emerson Palmieri. Lampard has shown favour towards the latter in his time at the club so far, and with Cesar Azpilicueta now able to cover on the left with Reece James at right back, selling backup Alonso might be on the cards.
But we still don’t think it’s likely that Lampard decides to shed even fringe players just as the season reaches its busiest point.
As it is, Sarri will have to maintain his interest until the summer, where we can potentially see him getting his wishes on Willian and Alonso.
