Sarri wants Chelsea pair Alonso, Loftus-Cheek at Lazio

Maurizio Sarri wants to go back to Chelsea for two players if he lands the Lazio job.

Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Marcos Alonso are reportedly being lined up by former Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri for a move to Lazio.

Both players were regulars during the Italian's single season at Stamford Bridge but have not been guaranteed a starting spot since.

Calciomercato.com says the full-back position is the first priority for Sarri when he completes his anticipated move to Lazio.

The coach is said to see Alonso, 30, as a top target but the financial aspects of the deal have not yet been revealed.

A bid for Loftus-Cheek would initially be on a loan basis, as reported by Sky Italia's Gianluca Di Marzio.

But, like Fikayo Tomori's switch to AC Milan, Lazio reportedly want to agree an option to buy the midfielder permanently at the end of next season.
