Maurizio Sarri has finally been announced as the new manager of Lazio, and we all know exactly what that means.
Cue rumours of a host of Chelsea players being linked with joining Sarri in Serie A this summer, and we’ve already had a couple in the shape of Marcos Alonso and Ruben Loftus-Cheek.

But that is far from the end and we even expect more to be strongly linked/wanted by Sarri.
Next up, goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga is wanted by Sarri according to Italian reporter Alfredo Pedulla, as cited by Area Napoli.
Pedulla, as we know from his time reporting on Chelsea when Sarri was in charge, does have close links to the Italian, so it is probably worth taking note of what he says when Sarri is involved.
There is no indication whether he is suggesting a loan or a permanent deal, but you’d imagine it would only be a loan at this point, nobody is paying anything near what Chelsea would want for Kepa right now.
