Sarri wants four Napoli players at Chelsea

We start with The Mirror who report that Maurizio Sarri wants four Napoli at Chelsea as he edges closer to taking over at Stamford Bridge. Raul Albiol, Elseid Hysaj, Jose Callejon and Dries Mertens are all wanted by Sarri but Napoli are keen to limit how many players their former manager signs. However Alvaro Morata and David Luiz could be leaving the club.

Paper Round's view: Put to one side the error in letting Luiz leave Chelsea and some of this business has to be questioned, particularly given the relative ages of players like Albiol or Callejon given their ceilings. Given some of the youth prospects Chelsea have do these signings make sense?

Chelsea also want Pjanic

We've got another Chelsea story from The Mirror and it is that Chelsea also want to sign Miralem Pjanic to strengthen their midfield next season. Reports had claimed that a deal was done and whilst they were premature the Blues are certainly interested according to The Mirror.

Paper Round's view: Pjanic would appear to make some sense, he offers a level of control in midfield that Chelsea just don't have at the moment apart from Cesc Fabregas. It will certainly be interesting to see if Sarri tries to fit both of them into one team...

Inter close to Nainggolan

Sticking with Serie A and it is being reported that Radja Nainggolan is edging closer to a move to Inter Milan from Roma that will see Nicolo Zaniolo and Davide Santon move the other way with Inter also paying £20 million.

Paper Round's view: Even though he was left out of the Belgian World Cup squad it still feels as if Nainggolan could do a job in the Premier League, it's a shame that move will probably never happen now.

Sterling to miss Panama clash

And we end with the story dominating most of the back pages, and that is that Raheem Sterling will be rested for the game against Panama with Marcus Rashford coming in. This comes following a picture getting out that shows the notes of England assistant manager Steve Holland.

Paper Round's view: Rashford was impressive against Tunisia and deserves his starting spot despite concerns from some that he struggles when starting from the off.
