Sarri: Chelsea need two signings in January

Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri feels his side need to sign new two players during the January transfer market.

The Blues looks set to lose experienced midfielder Cesc Fabregas to Monaco soon and Sarri has already stated that he would like to sign a player to replace the Spain international.

Chelsea have struggled for goals this season due to a lack of a cutting edge up front, with strikers Alvaro Morata and Oliver Giroud both struggling for form and fitness.

While Sarri has been very open about the fact he has little say over transfers at Stamford Bridge, the Italian coach is expected to at least let his club hierarchy know what positions he feels his side need strengthening in.

“As you know very well I am not in control of the transfer market,” Sarri told a press conference today.

“In my opinion we need two players, but then it is up to the club.”

Chelsea are currently in fourth place in the Premier League, three points ahead of fifth place Arsenal, with the Blues welcoming Newcastle to Stamford Bridge this weekend.
