Former Chelsea boss and now Juventus boss Maurizio Sarri is reportedly keen on signing two Chelsea players in the January transfer window.

According to Daily Star, Sarri is ready to offer around £20 million for versatile Chelsea player Emerson Palmieri, who won the Europa League with Chelsea under Sarri last season.

Lampard isn’t convinced about Emerson and has been linked with a move for Leicester City left-back Ben Chilwell. This has convinced Sarri that Chelsea could be tempted to sell Emerson if the club’s transfer ban is lifted.

Willian, who has been at the club for since 2013, is also tempting Sarri.

Juventus are finding goals hard to come by this season with just 23 in 13 games, and they have been outscored by the six teams below them.

Sarri believes signing Willian and Emerson will help solve their problems in attack.
