Chelsea Transfer News Maurizio Sarri is still looking to bolster his ranks

He is confident to bring in the Premier League cup to Chelsea in the coming season and believes that the team has what it takes to be the victor of the Premier League.

Real Madrid, Barcelona, Villarreal, Juventus, Bayern Munich and Monaco were all keen on signing a player who scored 21 goals in 30 games across various age groups last season.

The World Cup victor did play regularly at the end of last season, but as he approaches his 32nd birthday it seems as though Sarri will opt to keep the more youthful Morata and Batshuayi ahead of Giroud, who has attracted interest from Marseille.

On Wednesday night, Emery got the better of Sarri with Arsenal winning their International Champions Cup clash on penalties.

He said: "I don't know if he is not confident".

"I want to speak to him before I answer these questions", Sarri said.

The Times is reporting that Willian failed to return to the club on last Friday's return date set by Maurizio Sarri due to issues with his passport.

At a club famed for its dominance of academy football and then the difficulty for those young players of actually breaking into the first-team, it was a significant statement that will hopefully also herald a change of approach under Sarri.

The Belgium worldwide is wanted by a number of clubs and is keen to move on from Stamford Bridge as he seeks regular first team football.

"We are talking about top players and I think every club wants to keep top players". "I want to speak to him".

But Blues boss Sarri has declared that Hudson-Odoi is very much part of his plans after another electrifying pre-season performance.
