Former Blues boss hoping to scupper Chelsea’s chances of landing €40m striker in January

By Ryan Darby

Napoli are the latest team to express an interest in Chelsea target and Genoa striker Krzysztof Piątek.

Gazzetta dello Sport, as cited on Calciomercato, reports that Carlo Ancelotti is very keen to sign the player after his breakout season in Serie A.

Bayern, Liverpool, Juventus and Chelsea have all been linked with the free-scoring striker.

Genoa are reportedly asking for around €40 million for his services, with interest starting to mount.

The report claims that the Italian outfit will ask for the player to return on loan until the end of the season as part of any deal in the January window.

Maurizio Sarri was keen to add to his forward line in the summer and missed out on the chance to bring Gonzalo Higuain to Stamford Bridge.

Clearly unhappy with his current options in the final third, Sarri could use the January market to strengthen his squad in order to compete on all fronts.
