Maurizio Sarri wants Chelsea FC to spend £140m on five summer signings following his appointment, according to a report in England.

The Daily Express is reporting that the Italian coach has already set his sights on four summer targets ahead of his anticipated appointment as Antonio Conte’s replacement.

The same article states that Sarri is eager to bring in left-back Elseid Hysaj and winger Dries Mertens from his former club Napoli to bolster the Chelsea FC defence.

According to the same story, the 59-year-old is also interested in recruiting Juventus defender Daniele Rugani and Inter Milan midfielder Matias Vecino.

The Daily Express list in-demand Nice midfielder Jean Michael Seri as Chelsea’s fifth target in the summer transfer window.

The Blues finished in fifth spot in the Premier League table last season following a 3-0 loss to Newcastle United at St James’ Park in their final fixture of the 2017-18 campaign.

Chelsea FC were 1-0 winners against bitter rivals Manchester United in the FA Cup final at Wembley after Eden Hazard’s winner from the penalty spot.

The Blues have won the Premier League title in two of the past four seasons, but Chelsea FC have also missed out on Champions League football in two of the last three campaigns.
