Maurizio Sarri reveals the number of player’s Chelsea will sign January

Maurizio Sarri will not shelve plans to delve into the transfer market in January. Chelsea racked up two losses in the past three weeks, prior to their stunning win against table toppers Manchester City at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.

A chunk of 10 points separated both Premier League side on Saturday night, but the Blues sliced off three points, to reduce the deficit to seven.

City sit at second place now, one point behind Liverpool who romped to an easy 4-0 win over Bournemouth on Saturday.

Sarri did not think Chelsea needed to shore up their squad after big buys in the summer.

However, he is keen on mopping up things in the squad and has not knock back the likelihood of chasing down targets in the January transfer window.

The Blues have been heavily linked with defenders and strikers this term after languid showoff indicated strongly they need to beef up those areas.

But the 56-year-old has pointed out that completely revamping the squad doesn’t drive away problems. A mountain of problems could strike at any time, however what he is after is: “We need to change mentality – not because the old mentality was bad but it is not suitable with the new way of playing.

“Then after all this, maybe you need one player…You have to create a new mentality and style of playing.”
