  • Chelsea prepare £35m summer move for Nice midfield enforcer Jean Michael Seri

Chelsea legend, Marcel Desailly, has warned the club against sacking manager, Antonio Conte.

But amid the increasing transfer talk and rumors, Willian went on to tell the Daily Mail [via Goal.com] "I like the Premier League".

Chelsea have made contact with Napoli coach Maurizio Sarri about replacing Antonio Conte, according to reports.

Desailly insists that the former Juventus coach should have enough credit in the bank after his superb first season in England and that Chelsea should instead sell four or five of their underperforming players.

He told Daily Mail, "What was working last season with Conte suddenly can not work this season".

Chelsea are weighing up a number of summer targets, the report claims, and understand that failure to qualify for the Champions League may force them to switch targets. I played with a lot of pain and it probably would have been better if I'd stopped.

"Players like [Victor] Moses and [Marcos] Alonso played a magnificent season last year but they were in need of support this year".

The midfielder was brought in by Chelsea, following the departure of mainstay Nemanja Matic to Manchester United, with the hope of recreating the N'Golo Kante - Drinkwater partnership, that had fired Leicester City to a Premier League title back in the 2015/16 season.

Midfield: N'Golo Kante will no doubt keep his place in the middle of the park but I think we could see Conte decide to freshen it up alongside the French global.

If Southampton lose this game, Mark Hughes will become only the second manager to lose three Premier League games against the same opponent in a single season after Graeme Souness vs Arsenal in 2004-05.

If the Ivory Coast global arrives at the Stamford Bridge, Drinkwater's game time will take a further hit, given that he is already behind the likes of Kante, Cesc Fabregas and Tiemoue Bakayoko in the pecking order. "Together they protected the defence like it was needed".
