New Juventus manager Maurizio Sarri has directed senior club officials to sign two of the players at his former club Chelsea.

According to The Times, Sarri has set sights on two of the players from Chelsea.

It was revealed that the Italian tactician wants Juventus to sign two players he trust from the Chelsea squad.

Maurizio Sarri wants to take both midfielder Jorginho and defender Emerson Palmieri back to Italy.

Italian international Jorginho signed for Chelsea last summer in a deal worth £57m and the reason behind his move to West London was Maurizio Sarri.

The former Empoli manager convinced him to move to Chelsea despite the fact that he already had an agreement to join Premier League rivals Manchester City.

Jorginho joined Chelsea from Napoli as he followed Sarri to West London.

Both Jorginho and Sarri were subjected to fan abuse at various times from the Chelsea supporters.

On his own part, Emerson Palmieri is an Italian international who joined Chelsea from AS Roma for around £15m at the start of last year.

The Chelsea left-back was close to moving back to Italy during the winter window before the transfer fell through and he went on to become the first choice left-back at Stamford Bridge ahead of former recipient Marcos Alonso.
