Allegri wants Chelsea to sign three Juventus players if he takes the job

  Allegri wants Chelsea to sign three Juventus players if he takes the job Massimiliano Allegri will tell Chelsea officials to sign three current Juventus players if he takes over from Antonio Conte as the club’s manager this summer, according to reports in Italy. Allegri has already confirmed that he will leaving Juventus in the summer to seek a job in another European country and all signs are pointing to him taking over at Stamford Bridge as Conte’s position is looking untenable after his disputes with the board regarding the club’s transfer policy. The Juve boss, if hired by Chelsea, will reportedly ask the club to sign three of his current squad members – midfielders Rodrigo Bentancur and Miralem Pjanic and winger Federico Bernardeschi. Allegri will also, according to reports, look to bring David Luis back in from the cold and look to build the side around the abilities of Spaniard Cesc Fabregas, who’s become somewhat of a forgotten man at Chelsea in recent weeks.

Whether it’s Arsene Wenger in charge of Arsenal next season or another manager, central midfield is likely to be one of the club’s highest priorities.

Jack Wilshere’s future at the Emirates remains up in the air, while Aaron Ramsey is being linked with moves away from the club.

The Gunners will be hoping to strengthen across the park over the summer in a bid to fight their way back into the top four and secure Champions League football once again.

We’ve looked at a few central midfielders that they could sign to improve their squad.

Chelsea begin talks to sign Seri

  Chelsea begin talks to sign Seri Chelsea have begun talks with Nice to sign midfielder Jean Seri in the summer window. According to French outlet L’Equipe, via Sport Witness, Chelsea are keen to add Seri to their squad this summer. The report claims that Chelsea have made initial contact over a move for Seri as they look to improve their midfield ahead of next season. Seri has an agreement with Nice that should allow him to leave the club for €40m in the summer, a fee which Chelsea can easily match. Manchester City are also said to be keen on Seri, meaning that Chelsea are not going to be unopposed in their attempts to sign him. The 26-year-old has been a star for Nice in midfield over the past few seasons and has attracted the interest of a number of top clubs. Barcelona have been previously touted with a move for him, though that appears to have died down.

West Ham reject chance to sign Joe Hart .
West Ham have reportedly rejected the opportunity to sign Joe Hart on a permanent deal, according to Metro. The England stopper joined the Hammers last Summer, with Pep Guardiola deciding that Hart was not good enough for his Man City side. The Hammers agreed to paid half of Hart’s £120,000 a week wages. However, Hart’s time at the Olympic Stadium has been a turbulent one, with the loan star being dropped for the majority of the season. The Hammers did have an option to buy Hart this Summer, however, they have not decided to take the club up on their offer. Metro also report that West Ham will let Adrian leave in the Summer, and want a new number one keeper. Hart will speak to Manchester City this Summer about his future, with his contract set to expire next Summer. It is not clear if Hart will be making the trip to Russia this Summer, with his fluctuating form being a key issue.
