Maurizio Sarri set to battle former club for £40m star to replace Morata

Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri is set to battle former club Napoli for £40 million-rated striker Krzysztof Piatek in January.

The Polish striker has been in red-hot form for Serie A club Genoa this season, scoring seven goals in as many games.

And the Express report that Sarri will now look to the 23-year-old to replace the misfiring Alvaro Morata .

Piatek has been placed at the top of Sarri’s wanted list, but they face stiff competition from a host of clubs, including Juventus, Bayern Munich and Barcelona.
