Chelsea have had a tough time this season as after 37 league matches, they are standing on the 5th spot and are unlikely to climb any higher. They were knocked out of Europe back in February and their manager Antonio Conte’s only saving grace remains the FA Cup final to be held later this month.

Even if Conte does win the age-old competition, there will be a question mark on his future after his recent run-ins with the Chelsea hierarchy. The Italian seems to be unsatisfied with the decisions of the Chelsea board on multiple occasions and may get the sack for insubordination.

This development at the Bridge has led to reports linking Maurizio Sarri, the Napoli boss with a move to Chelsea. If Sarri were to come, he will definitely need to reshape the team in a way he best sees fit and will almost sign new players.

Here are 3 players we think Sarri can target if he ends up taking the reins at Stamford Bridge in the near future.

Toby Alderweireld

The Belgian has unresolved contract situation at Tottenham Hotspur and that might see him leave the club at the end of the current season. He is only 29 years old and is an excellent reader of the game. He is comfortable on the ball, he rarely makes a wrong tackle and will be an excellent fit in Chelsea’s backline.

However, whether Spurs will agree to sell to a direct rival like Chelsea will be an issue that Sarri will have to resolve first.

 

Kalidou Koulibaly

The Senegalese centre-back has been one of the long-term targets for the Blues and he can be a great addition to their current backline that has been struggling throughout the current season. Koulibaly currently plays for Napoli under the tutelage of their boss Sarri and if the Italian mastermind makes his way to Stamford Bridge, there is a good possibility that he can bring a number of players from his current squad at the Italian outfit, of which Koulibaly might be the very first one.

The experienced Chilean has found himself out of the starting XI at Bayern Munich on several occasions this season and will definitely not be happy with a bench role much longer. He is already north of 30 and will want to use his last few primary years playing as much football as possible. At Chelsea, he can prove to be the perfect partner for N’Golo Kante.
