Chelsea have been told they will have to cough out £35 million to be able to have the signature of Serie B’s Brescia player Sandro Tonali.
The price for the player has gone up because of the interest of several clubs for the player as Juventus, Inter Milan and Napoli are also reported to be interested in his signature.
Tonali has been tipped to be the next Andrea Pirlo the Italian national team would produce because of his style and quality and he has been tipped to be ready to be invited any time soon to the senior team.
Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri is a big fan of the player and is believed to have forwarded his name as a transfer wish to the management for further actions.
As a midfielder, he has got no goal to his name in his 10 appearances for the Serie B side this season but he has been able to create 3 assists on goal for his side.
Sarri will want a player who will be able to fill into the shoes of Belgium international Eden Hazard so that he can be easily replaced each time he is unavailable.
Although, Sarri can boast of Ross Barkley who has been able to make big impacts while the Belgium man was away to injury.
