According to a report via sporting witness, Maurizio Sarri is chasing Italian teen sensation Sandro Tonali with report suggesting Brescia are reportedly demanding somewhere in the region of €35 million for a deal to happen in January, according to II Mattino 

The Chelsea boss have frequently sent his scouts out to watch the 18-year-old Brescia midfield in action with report suggesting he has instructed his scouts to try and wrap up a deal for the player being dubbed as the ‘next Andrea Pirlo’.

Tonali has lit up Serie B with his performances and Juventus, Roma, Inter and AC Milan are all chasing his signature.

Sarri is a long-term admirer and wanted Tonali at Napoli a year ago, but a big Chelsea offer would put them at the front of the queue in January.

Tonali is a composed playmaker with a sharp turn of pace and has impressed Sarri with his maturity for such a young age.

He has even been touted for a full international call-up already after super shows in Italy’s Under-19s.

He is tied down at the Stadio Mario Rigamonti until 2021, and has impressed this season for the Little Swallows – chipping in with three assists in seven games.
