Recall that Ivisionsport in a previous report today revealed that former Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri has accepted a new offer to Italian club Lazio.
Sarri, who is expected to fully resume at the club next season, has reportedly told the club the first player he would like him to sign this summer transfer window.
The report revealed that the Italy international has asked Lazio hierarchy to sign Chelsea midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek.
This is according to reports from Sky Sport Italia. Recall that Sarri forged a cordial relationship with Loftus-Cheek when he was in charge of Stamford Bridge.
Loftus-Cheek impressed in Sarri’s unique season at Stamford Bridge and the Italian manager is hoping he would do the same in the Italian Seria A.
Following Sarri’s departure from Stamford Bridge, Loftus-Cheek were unable to reclaim regular playing chances at Stamford Bridge as he spent the 2020/21 season on loan at Fulham and made 32 appearances for Scott Parker’s men in all competitions.
In an earlier statement this year, Loftus-Cheek admitted Sarri told him the truth during their time together at Chelsea.
The midfielder would most likely accept the request to join Sarri at Lazio.
