Sarri eyeing three players to kick-start club's summer business

New Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri has reportedly identified three players to bolster the first-team squad during the ongoing transfer window.

Sarri was confirmed as Antonio Conte's successor earlier today after he put pen-to-paper on a three-year deal with the west London giants.

According to The Express, the Blues are now expected to kick-start their transfer business with talks having begun to sign Juventus' Daniele Rugani for a fee of around £30m.

It is added that Sarri also has his eye on signing CSKA Moscow midfielder Aleksandr Golovin and Roma goalkeeper Alisson Becker and both deals could be finalised in the next few weeks.

Chelsea have kept their first-team squad intact since the close of the previous campaign but there could be potential exits in the near future to compensate for any incoming signings.

Thibaut Courtois has been one linked with a potential move to Real Madrid this summer and negotiations regarding the deal could begin shortly after his return from the World Cup finals in Russia.
