Chelsea head coach Maurizio Sarri has revealed that he is confident there will be players signed in the January transfer window to help the team’s quest of finishing in the top four and returning to the Champions League next season.
Sarri is having trouble with his forward line, with both Alvaro Morata and Olivier Giroud unable to find the goal consistently. They are currently using Eden Hazard as a false nine, while Morata is expected to leave the club in the current window.
The Italian coach, however, is confident that there will be new signings in this window, especially in attack as well as a successor for Cesc Fabregas, who left for Monaco a week ago.
When asked about the same, according to Goal, Sarri said, “I don’t know, I want to be clear, I can’t help you. I spoke to Marina two weeks ago, Marina knows my opinion.”
“Then I decided to focus on the pitch, matches, training, so now I am confident because Marina is working very hard, but I don’t know anything about the matter because I only focus on matches.
“I don’t call her every evening, otherwise I spend all my mental energy on the [transfer] market. It’s better I spend my mental energy on the pitch,” he concluded.
It remains to be seen who else the club will bring in apart from Gonzalo Higuain, considering they will need a deep squad if they are to have any chance of finishing in the top four and return to the Champions League.
