Maurizio Sarri has hinted that Chelsea FC will not make any new signings in the January transfer window.

The Blues have made a solid start to life under their new manager following his appointment as Antonio Conte’s successor at Stamford Bridge back in July.

Chelsea FC are unbeaten in the Premier League and have taken 24 points from their opening 10 games, winning seven times and drawing three.

With the January transfer window now approaching fast, there is bound to be plenty of speculation suggesting that Sarri could look to bolster his squad in the new year.

However, the Blues boss has now seemed to have hinted that he is more concerned with improving his current squad than looking for new signings in January.

Sarri is quoted as saying by the Independent when asked about potential signings in January: “I didn’t ask anything about it to my club at the moment because at the moment I think we can stay with these players and be competitive.

“Maybe not for the top but we have to try to arrive close to the top.

“I have to think I only have to help these players to improve. It is too easy to go into the market for every problem. I think we need to improve and we need to improve with these players because they can improve.

“I have to think to improve my players. It is my work, I think. The market, there is the club. I can say to the club my opinion about what I think I need but my job is to try to improve my players.”

Despite Sarri’s comments, the Blues are bound to be linked with a number of players as the January transfer window draws ever nearer.

Chelsea FC will return to Premier League action on Sunday afternoon when they take on Crystal Palace at Stamford Bridge.

Sarri has been tasked with steering the Blues back into the top four this season after they finished fifth and won the FA Cup last term under Conte.
