Sandro Tonali

There are indications that Chelsea will be active in the coming January transfer market with reports of interests in players.

The latest to be linked to the club is Brescia midfielder Sandro Tonali who is believed to be worth about £20 million.

At just 18, Tolani has attracted interest from a number of clubs who are jostling for his signature.

The playmaker has impressed in the Italian Serie B this season and there is o doubt he won’t last long at the club with the offers coming in for him.

Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri leads in the race for Tonali having been monitoring his progress for a while.

Sarri had made an attempt to get the Italian U-19 player while he was in charge at Napoli but a deal failed to fall through.

However, an offer from Chelsea might be too good to be rejected and it could be the time for the player to move.

The former Napoli boss is a believer of the youth system and hopes to have a mix with the older players at the Stamford Bridge.

The Italian seems to have won the heart of the Chelsea owners and will be trusted for whatever decision he makes as regarding signings to the club.
