Chelsea set to offer €20m for Brescia teenager Sandro Tonali

Sandro Tonali is reportedly a key target for Chelsea in January with coach Maurizio Sarri supposedly a huge admirer of the midfielder.

Tonali is seen as one of the brightest prospects to come out of Brescia in years and has, at 18, already become one of their midfield stalwarts.

The teenager has earned himself a call-up into the Italy Under-21 squad off the back of his promising performances this term, and a report in ESPN has claimed that Sarri has ordered scouts to watch the youngster on a number of occasions already this term.

They claim that the Blues have been impressed with Tonali and will offer €20m in January, and then loan him back to Brescia for the rest of the campaign.

The west London side are looking to beat the likes of Juventus, Roma and both Milan clubs to his signature.
