New Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri has demanded Chelsea to sign Pepe Reina despite his recent move to AC Milan.

The ex-Liverpool goalkeeper worked under Sarri at Napoli, with both having left the Serie A side this summer.

As Thibaut Courtois is poised to leave Chelsea for Real Madrid, Reina might be an alternative to replace him.

Leicester’s Kasper Schmeichel, Arsenal’s Petr Cech and Manchester City’s Joe Hart have also been linked with Chelsea.

According to Italian outlet Premium Sport, Sarri is said to have explicitly asked Chelsea to reunite him with the Spaniard in west London.
