Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri provides update on Alisson transfer

New Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri refused to rule out a move for Roma keeper Alisson.

The Brazil No.1 is wanted by the Stamford Bridge club but Liverpool have already had a £67million bid accepted.

Chelsea are expected to rival the Anfield club as they prepare to lose Thibaut Courtois to Spanish giants Real Madrid.

And Sarri said: "I think that i am one of few managers who is bored by transfer market. I don’t want to talk about it and I’m not interested in it."

Sarri, who conducted his press conference in Italian, was unveiled as Antonio Conte’s replacement last weekend.

The former Napoli boss will be tasked with reviving the club’s fortunes after they slipped out of the top four last season.

Sarri is yet to win a trophy as a manager, but earned plaudits for his performance in Naples.

He hopes to end his silverware search with Chelsea.

"It’s true I haven’t won anything, but I have been in Serie A for four or five years and apart from Juventus, no one has won anything," he added.

"I think we have worked very well and the difference between working well and winning often is minimal.

"Honestly I hope I will be able to fill in this gap with the club, the difference between doing well and winning."
