The Italian suggested his preference was to recruit a new striker, but given Chelsea's board, chiefly director Marina Granovskaia, are responsible for transfers, it is by no means certain Sarri's wish will be granted. "I think we need something different for characteristics", said Sarri.

"I have to try to improve my players, my team, my offensive base".

He, therefore, stated that his side must try to solve the problem of lack of goals before the winter transfer window is over if they must progress as well.

"I have to think of my responsibility with the training".

Goalkeeper Angus Gunn, making his Premier League debut, twice denied Eden Hazard and Alvaro Morata had a strike ruled out for offside while also missing other opportunities as Sarri finally appeared to lose patience with the misfiring striker at Stamford Bridge. In the last few matches we were in control against every team but at the moment it's not easy for us to score the first goal.

But Hazard couldn't do it all on his own and, while successive away wins at Watford and Palace made it a happy Christmas for Chelsea, their first home game of the new year was a lot like their last in 2018.

Despite dominating Leicester on Dec 22, they were beaten 1-0 as they failed to break down the visitors' defence.

AC Milan are anxious about losing him and are preparing for a tough next few months as more clubs look to join the chase for Kessie.

Chelsea remain in fourth on 44 points, just three ahead of Arsenal in the race to qualify for the Champions League.

The Ivory Coast global has attracted the attention of several clubs in Europe with his performances for the Rossoneri and some of them are keen to snare him away from the San Siro.
