Sarri more interested in signing a winger than a striker like Higuain

Sarri more interested in signing a winger than a striker like Higuain

Website Goal is reporting that the west London side have opted not to pursue a deal for the 31-year-old forward, who is now on loan to AC Milan from Juventus.

For Southampton, they kept their first clean sheet in 11 Premier League games but still dropped into the bottom three as they fall below Burnley into 18th after the Clarets' 2-1 win at Huddersfield.

The Italian suggested his preference was to recruit a new striker, but given Chelsea's board, chiefly director Marina Granovskaia, are responsible for transfers, it is by no means certain Sarri's wish will be granted.

Paris Saint-Germain are claimed to be keen on signing the midfielder and some of the top names in the Premier League are also very much interested in getting their hands on him. "[Hudson-Odoi] I think in this season played six, seven official matches in Europe, so I think that he has to be lucky".

He, therefore, stated that his side must try to solve the problem of lack of goals before the winter transfer window is over if they must progress as well.

Chelsea continued to labour after half-time, with Alvaro Morata having a goal ruled out in the 71st minute after a tight offside call and then seeing a shot saved by Gunn.

Sarri added "I'm not in charge of the market".

The 2016/17 champions missed a chance to close in within a point off third-placed Manchester City who have a game at hand against league-leaders Liverpool.

"The club knows my position, my opinion". I think we need something different for characteristics.

"I have to try to improve my players, my team, my offensive base". I have a very good view on our players, what I can expect from them and what I don't see.
