New Juventus coach Sarri wants double Chelsea raid

New Juventus coach Maurizio Sarri plans to go back to Chelsea for two new signings.

Sarri's departure from Chelsea was finally confirmed on Sunday as the Blues announced they had agreed a compensation package in excess of £5m to allow him to join Juventus.

But two players in particular are said to have impressed the 60-year-old at Stamford Bridge and Sarri reportedly wants both Jorginho and Emerson to join him in Turin, says the Mirror.

Jorginho was signed by Sarri last summer for £57m having played under the Italian at Napoli.

Emerson is another that Sarri is said to be keen on signing. The 24-year-old was in and out of the Chelsea team last season, making only ten appearances in the Premier League.
