Italian League side AC Milan are reportedly planning to sign Chelsea star Cesc Fabregas during January transfer window.

The Spaniard has only made one Premier League appearance in six matches this season and the Serie A side are hoping they can take advantage of his non playing status at the Bridge.

Sarri seems to have found confidence in former Napoli midfielder Jorginho in the middle of the park.

The Italian, who joined the Blues this summer in a £57.4 million deal from Napoli has been playing along with loanee Mateo Kovacic and N'Golo Kante - making Fabregas surplus to requirements.
