MAURIZIO SARRI is targeting signing another of his former players despite the threat of the Chelsea sack hanging over him, it has been claimed. Sarri is growing under increasing pressure in his position at Stamford Bridge with the club’s top four hopes in the Premier League hanging in the balance. Matias Vecino is in the sights of Maurizio Sarri even though he is in risk of the Chelsea sack But according to reports in Italy the Chelsea boss is pressing ahead with planning for next season by looking at Inter Milan star Matias Vecino. Tuttosport say the 27-year-old Uruguayan midfielder is one of Sarri’s top targets to bring in at Stamford Bridge over the summer. But whether Chelsea will be in a position to sign anyone in the close season is hugely debatable given they have been hit with a transfer ban by Fifa. The club are appealing the stiff sentence handed down to them for breaking regulations over the signings of young players – but at the moment they are unable to bring in any new faces. Sarri has pressed ahead with scouting possible targets in any case as the club desperately fight to overturn the ruling. MOUNTING PRESSURE And it is claimed he wants to bring in Venico in a £26million deal as he looks to sign another player he has worked with in the past. The Italian brought in Jorginho from old club Napoli last summer, and followed that up by signing Gonzalo Higuain in January. And if he does follow through on his interest in Venico, who he worked with at Empoli, it would be the third former player Sarri has drafted in at Stamford Bridge. The big problem for the 60-year-old, however, is that although he is working on next season he might not get the chance to carry out his plans. For there is mounting pressure on his position, as the Blues stutter in the league and currently lie in sixth place.

Hundreds of Chelsea season-ticket holders are selling their seats for the club’s upcoming Premier League games in a protest against manager Maurizio Sarri, reports claim. Blues supporters have grown increasingly frustrated with the Italian’s philosophy and they have already made their feelings known following a poor run of results. Maurizio Sarri is under increasing pressure at Chelsea Fans have booed Jorginho, the figurehead of Sarri’s possession-based style, and chants of ‘f*** Sarri-ball’ continue to ring around Stamford Bridge. Now, according to the Daily Mail, some season-ticket holders are planning to boycott the games against Brighton, West Ham and Burnley next month. Sari’s job is already under threat with the club’s top-four hopes hanging by a thread. [article-rail-section title=”LATEST FOOTBALL NEWS” posts_category=”221″ posts_number=”8″ query_type=”recent” /] Chelsea are sixth in the Premier League with eight games to go and could be forced to win the Europa League if they want to qualify for next season’s Champions League. And the number of tickets available for sale on ticket exchange websites will alarm the club’s hierarchy. The Mail reports that more than 400 season-ticket holders have made their seats available for the London derby against West Ham on April 8, while close to 700 tickets are being sold ahead of Burnley’s visit on April 22.

While they face an uphill battle to finish in the top four, they have been drawn a favourable route to the Europa League final in Baku, with Slavia Prague their quarter-final opponents. Two consecutive seasons without Champions League football would create panic at Chelsea, who have also been hit with a two-window transfer ban by FIFA.

Matias Vecino played under Maurizio Sarri at Empoli (Picture: Getty) Maurizio Sarri has identified Inter’s Matias Vecino as a potential summer signing. The Chelsea manager is not guaranteed to be at Stamford Bridge come the end of the season with Chelsea struggling to cement a top four place in the Premier League. Indeed, the west London club’s most likely route back into the Champions League looks to be via winning the Europa League having been drawn against rank outsiders Slavia Prague in the quarter finals. Chelsea have dropped five points from from their last two Premier League games against Wolves and Everton and have suffered from a chronic lack of goals from midfield. [metro-zone-post-strip] Summer signing Jorginho, one of Sarri’s former Napoli charges, has scored just once from open play all season, Ross Barkley is without a Premier League goal since October, while N’Golo Kante has scored just three times in his new advanced role. Sarri attempted to address Chelsea’s impotency in front of goal during the January transfer window by offloading Alvaro Morata and signing Gonzalo Higuain on loan. Chelsea have struggled for midfield goals this season, highlighted by Mateo Kovacic who is yet to break his duck after 40 games (Picture: Getty) The Argentine international, prolific under Sarri at Napoli, has scored in just two of his 10 Chelsea appearances so far and is struggling both ‘mentally’ and ‘physically’, according to his manager. Despite Chelsea’s and his own precarious position, Sarri is said to be planning for the upcoming transfer window and has identified Uruguay international Vecino as a primary target. Mateo Kovacic, who is yet to score in 40 appearances for Chelsea, is likely to be sent back to Real Madrid in the summer and Vecino, who has five goals this season, including a Champions League winner against Spurs, is high on Sarri’s wishlist, according to Tuttosport. The pair worked together at Empoli and Inter value the 27-year-old at €30million. [metro-tag-post-strip]

CHELSEA fans are increasing the pressure on Maurizio Sarri by boycotting the club’s home matches, it has been claimed. The Mail report that hundreds of Blues season ticket holders are trying to off-load their seats for upcoming games at Stamford Bridge as they begin to vote with their feet. Chelsea fans are starting to boycott home matches in protest against Maurizio Sarri There were empty seats in the ground for the last home match against Wolves, and the article claims it is likely to be a recurring theme at matches next month. And that is likely to heap more pressure on the under-fire manager with the Chelsea board taking a keen interest in the mood among the fanbase. The Blues are still in with a chance of securing a top four finish in the Premier League and the Champions League qualification they so desperately need. And the London club are also in the quarter-finals of the Europa League where they will come up against Slavia Prague – having been handed an inviting path through to the final. Yet Sarri remains a manager whose job is coming under increasing scrutiny as his side stutters along in the league and struggles to connect with the supporters. GENERAL SALE That is becoming evident as season ticket holders advertise their seats on re-selling platforms for the three home Premier League games next month. Home matches against London rivals West Ham are usually the biggest draw outside fixtures against the big title rivals in the league. But over 400 were listing their seats for sale on the club’s official exchange service for the April 8 game, which is being played on a Monday night. And almost 700 have been made available for the visit of Burnley on April 22, while the article claims their are scores of others who will not go but are not listing their seats for sale. The Brighton and Burnley games have now even gone on general sale, such is the lack of interest from members in watching the side in action. The prospect of empty seats comes weeks after the club’s supporters turned on Sarri during the FA Cup defeat to Manchester United. [article-rail-topic title=”Latest Chelsea news” term_id=”979″ posts_number=”6″ /] And social media is full of Blues supporters criticising the Italian’s style of management and his team selections.
