Maurizio Sarri says that Chelsea still have work to do in the transfer market, and believes he still needs another midfielder.
Jorginho is the only likely new first-team player signed by Chelsea this summer – we can forget Rob Green – but Sarri says that is still the area of the pitch that needs work.
Chelsea were reportedly in the market for a defender and a new striker, with Sarri’s interest in Higuain well-documented.
“I talk with the club about the market but only one or maybe two times, not more,” Sarri said.
“I spoke about positions and characteristics but no names So, I don’t know. I think we need something, but maybe only a player.
“We have very good midfielders, but maybe a midfielder with different characteristics would be a good fit.”
If Ruben Loftus-Cheek going to be fuming?
Higuain during today’s introductory press conference:”Sarri was only one who wanted me at Chelsea, here at Milan everyone wanted me. The motivation and conviction they showed at Milan was fundamental”
