Chelsea centre-back Andreas Christensen has revealed that he saw himself in difficult life following Maurizio Sarri’s appointment at Stamford Bridge.
The Denmark international has featured regularly under former manager Antonio Conte as he made 40 appearances last season.
But the 22-year-old has made just four outings this season which came in the Europa League.
Chelsea are currently linked with Juventus centre-back Daniele Rugani move as Sarri wants to reunite with his former Empoli defender.
According to reports, Arsenal are also monitoring Rugani’s availability as Unai Emery wants Laurent Koscielny replacement.
But if the Blues sign Rugani ahead of the Gunners, Emirates move for Christensen could make sense.
Christensen has made it clear that he isn’t happy with his lack of game time at Chelsea under former Napoli boss Sarri.
“Things are different from last season,” the Danish star lamented.
“I played a lot of games but this season it hasn’t been like that. It’s always difficult for a player but we’ll see what happens.”
“If you asked every player that’s not playing if they’re happy, they’re going to say ‘no’. Everyone wants to play.”
“I can’t do anything else but go back there, train and do my best. Every time I get that opportunity, I have to do well and show [Sarri] that he can count on me.”
“You don’t want to sit around and wait for it. You want to play straight away and that’s why we all play football.”
The Danish, who was promoted to the first team in 2014, has since made 49 appearances for the Blues in all competitions.
