Maurizio Sarri wants Chelsea stars Jorginho and Emerson Palmieri to join him at Juventus

New Juventus manager Maurizio Sarri wants to take his two favourite Chelsea players, Jorginho and Emerson Palmieri with him to Italy, according to the latest rumours.

Sarri was offocially named the new Juve coach on Sunday bringing an end to his one year in charge at Stamford Bridge, a year that saw the West London club get back into the Champions League and win the Europa League, however Sarri was never accepted by the fans and to some extent neither were his favoured stars.

Jorginho followed the Italian from Napoli in a £50 Million deal last summer and Sarri is hoping to pull off the same trick once again, he trusts the Brazilian midfielder immensely and tried to build the Blues around him and there is clearly a great relationship between the pair.

Emerson has not had it nearly as difficult as Jorghino in trying to win over the Chelsea faithful but he is another player that Sarri has a lot of time for and is said to be keen on taking the left-back back to Italy as well.

The huge obstacle in the way however, is that Chelsea are on a two-window transfer ban and simply will not sanction any moves until such a time that they can replace any departing players.

If Sarri wants to take either player with him he will have to hope that his former club gets the ban overturned or wait until next summer.
