According to the various reputable sources from England, Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri has no intention of rushing back into the market despite the lack of depth in his current squad.
The former Napoli chief has revived the struggling Chelsea team ever since he took charge of the Blues in favor of Antonio Conte last summer.
Under Sarri’s tutelage, the London outfit currently resides in the 3rd place in the Premier League, behind Manchester City and Liverpool, as one of the three undefeated teams in the national championship. Moreover, the Pensioners are the only English side that is yet to lose a match across all competitions.
Meticulous tactical planning, football intelligence, and the ability to inject confidence and get the best out of his players make Sarri one of the best managers in the English top flight at the minute.
After a frustrating season under Conte, Ross Barkley and David Luiz have flourished under Sarri, as well, as Ruben Loftus-Cheek, who returned to Stamford Bridge last summer following a promising loan spell at Crystal Palace.
Numerous Chelsea players have expressed their enthusiasm over their collaboration with the 59-year-old expert, including Cesc Fabregas although he had tumbled down the pecking order this season.
Hence, considering the Blues’ overall performance and the great atmosphere in the dressing room, the Italian coach believes he has no reason to make investments in January.
Last summer, the 2011-2012 Champions League Winners secured the signatures of Mateo Kovacic and Jorginho, as Sarri wanted to bolster Chelsea’s shaky midfield department at the time.
However, with Olivier Giroud and Alvaro Morata both failed to live up to expectations so far, the Premier League giants could still make one last-ditch attempt to hire a prolific goalscorer.
Inter Milan captain Mauro Icardi has been approached by Chelsea in the past few months, but his arrival seems more like science fiction. If the Blues still decide to make a move in January, the name of West Ham United’s Marko Arnautovic sounds like a more realistic option.
