Inter Milan remain attentive to Maurizio Sarri’s situation at Chelsea, according to claims from Italy.
The Serie A giants had been linked with a swoop for the manager in March, as current boss Luciano Spalletti’s future at San Siro has been under intense scrutiny of late.
Inter have been in steady form recently, though, quietening rumours that a swoop for Sarri could be on the cards.
The speculation has now picked back up again, however, and according to Gazzetta dello Sport, as cited in a report from Calciomercato, Inter are still keeping tabs on the former Napoli manager.
Sarri, as per the claims, is still being lined up by Roma, who appointed former Blues boss Claudio Ranieri on an interim basis until the end of the season after they sacked Eusebio Di Francesco.
Chelsea still have plenty to play for under the 60-year-old, with the race for the top four in the Premier League heating up and the Europa League trophy within their sights.
Four things Sarri must do if he stays at Chelsea next season
Find a balance in midfield
Chelsea haven’t been able to find a perfect balance in their midfield trio this season, and it’s cost them at times. Sarri must remedy this in the summer.
Hudson-Odoi has only just begun starting Premier League matches. He has to be a mainstay in the line-up next season; his potential cannot go to waste.
Integrate the youngsters
Sarri must utilise the young blood at his disposal. The aforementioned Hudson-Odoi and Ethan Ampadu deserve greater involvement, while the likes of Reece James, Tammy Abraham and Mason Mount could have roles to play.
Play more aggressively
Chelsea have been far too passive in possession this season. If they can play on the front foot and with a greater degree of aggression, they could create more openings.
