Chelsea’s summer transfer window hasn’t even really started yet, due to all the question marks surrounding the managerial situation. However, once it’s settled the other transfer dominoes will fall, and it appears that Jean Michael Seri and Dries Mertens are the main initial targets.

Once former Napoli manager Maurizio Sarri replaces Antonio Conte, the players being targeted by the team will feel more secure in signing on at Stamford Bridge.
