Maurizio Sarri left Chelsea for Juventus this summer and the Italian hopes to build a Juventus team capable of winning the Champions League by signing two Chelsea players.

According to Ilbianconero via Daily Mail, Sarri is keeping tabs on both N’Golo Kante and Emerson Palmieri at Stamford Bridge, with a view to swooping for them both in the summer.

Sarri worked with both players at Chelsea and is keen on taking them to Juventus to help build a team capable of winning the Champions League.

Sarri also wants to sign Tottenham midfielder Christian Eriksen, whose contract will run out at the end of the season.

Sarri has made a brilliant start to life at Juve, winning six and drawing one of his first seven Serie A matches but his primary objective is winning the Champions League and he reportedly believes he can achieve that by signing Chelsea duo Kante and Emerson and also Eriksen of Tottenham.

It’s difficult to see Chelsea letting Kante and Emerson leave Stamford Bridge for Juventus given their importance to Chelsea boss Frank Lampard.
