Former Napoli manager Maurizio Sarri replaced Antonio Conte as Chelsea boss this past weekend, and had his first press conference as Blues coach on Wednesday, saying he will make a few changes to the team, but admitted he is not that interested in the transfer market.

"With one or two changes we will be able to play my football," he said of the possibility of movement in the transfer window, according to Marca.

The Blues have already secured the signature of former Napoli midfielder Jorginho, who was expected to join Manchester City. The Italy international will bring stability to Chelsea's midfield, but he might not be the only player on the club's transfer wish list.

Chelsea have been linked with Russian midfielder Aleksandr Golovin, who enjoyed a fantastic 2018 FIFA World Cup. The CSKA Moscow midfielder is reportedly being chased by many clubs, although the English side are said to be leading the race, as per the London Evening Standard.

Juventus duo Gonzalo Higuain and young defender Daniele Rugani are also believed to be on Chelsea's radar, as are two goalkeepers. Arsenal's Petr Cech could be nearing a return to Stamford Bridge in this window, while Kasper Schmeichel is also reportedly a target. 

Chelsea's interest in a new goalkeeper is said to be due to Real Madrid's pursuit of Thibaut Courtois, who has also admitted he wants to spend more time with his family, who live in Madrid. ESPN have claimed that Los Blancos are also after Belgian winger Eden Hazard.

The 27-year-old was in terrific form for Belgium at the World Cup in Russia, scoring three goals and setting up a further two strikes, and could be the man who replaces Cristiano Ronaldo at the Santiago Bernabeu.

According to the Daily Star, Sarri plans to offload French midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko, who has been considered as a flop since his arrival in England from Monaco. Winger Willian could also be on his way out of the club, with FC Barcelona said to be after his signature.

Lastly, N'Golo Kante is the latest star to be rumoured to be looking for a move away from the Blues, although Le10 Sport have claimed the 27-year-old will not force a transfer.
