Speaking ahead of Chelsea’s Premier League clash with Bournemouth, Sarri was quoted by Metro UK as telling reporters: “I thought it was important for us to have two players [arrive]. One has arrived and I am waiting for the other.

“If he arrives I will be very happy, if not I will have to work with these players which isn’t a problem.
