The former Napoli Boss agreed to move away from Stamford Bridge after leading the Blues to Europa League glory in his first ever season in Premier League.
Furthermore, Sarri’s arrival also paved the way for his long-time protégé Jorginho, who was bought by the Blues for a sumptuous fee.
The 25-year-old became a regular under Sarri, playing a pivotal role for the Blues to finish third in the Premier League table.
Juventus are now best priced at 1/5 to sign Jorginho and get the maximum out of the midfielder thanks to Maurizio Sarri and his intelligent man-management, though punters listed with genting say otherwise as these odds could dramatically change at the start of the new season.
Emerson, another Italian defender, got his recognition as the league progressed and became a starter in the end, beating the likes of Marcos Alonso.
The former AS Roma left-back has been already on the radar of Bianconeri, prior to Sarri’s move. The 24-year-old played a great role in the Europa League final against Arsenal.
How will the Blues cope without the Italian duo?
From receiving a transfer ban to Eden Hazard’s departure to Real Madrid, the Londoners are having quite a tough time at the moment.

Ruben Loftus-Cheek can fill the void left by Jorginho and N’golo Kante can return to his traditional defensive midfield position whereas the left-back void remains doubtful as Alonso is linked with a summer exit.
