Chelsea head coach Maurizio Sarri is said to be ‘serious’ about a deal to sign Hirving Lozano from PSV.

According to reports from ESPN, as cited on Calciomercato, the Chelsea head coach appears to be a huge fan of the Mexican winger.

Previous reports have suggested that Chelsea had entered the running to sign the player from PSV, but they now look set to step up their interest.

A host of clubs, including Barcelona and Manchester United were linked with the pacey winger over the summer.

In what was his first campaign in the Eredivisie last season, Lozano was a standout performer for PSV and continued to step up during the World Cup for Mexico.

Lozano himself is well aware of the interest in his services and has failed to hide his admiration for the Premier League recently when being quizzed on his future.

After attracting a wealth of interest over the summer, he is expected to be one of the more in-demand players in January once again.
