World Cup star: Matias Vecino.

Maurizio Sarri wants to renew acquaintances with Matias Vecino, the midfielder he previously managed at Empoli.

According to the Evening Standard, the Chelsea boss has ordered the Premier League side’s transfer team to open talks with the Uruguay international, who currently plies his trade with Inter Milan.

Reportedly, Blues representatives met Nerazzurri officials regarding the deal during Saturday’s International Champions Cup pre-season friendly between the two sides.

Vecino, who is valued at around £31million, has been touted as a midfield partner for new recruit Jorginho and a man who can compliment marathon man N’Golo Kante.

World Cup winner: Olivier Giroud.

France World Cup winner Olivier Giroud wants to stay at Chelsea and fight for his place next season amid rumours linking him with Marseille.

According to the Daily Mail, the former Arsenal striker is content enough to remain in west London and resist the temptation of holding talks with the Olympians.

Giroud, 31, who arrived at the Blues in January on an 18-month contract from the Gunners, did not produce his very best form for Antonio Conte’s then charges but is still apparently part of new plans under Maurizio Sarri.

Even if the Frenchman does stay, Chelsea are expected to continue their pursuit of Juventus attacker Gonzalo Higuain.

In form: Loren found the back of the net with regularity last term.

West Ham’s hopes of signing Real Betis forward Loren look to be over, Mundo Deportivo reports.

The 24-year-old hitman has been tracked by the Hammers for some time, fuelling speculation that Manuel Pellegrini’s men were going to meet Loren’s €25million release clause.

However, the player himself has insisted he wants to stay at the Estadio Benito Villamarin and help the club build on their sixth-placed finish in La Liga last time out.

Loren, who could also sign a new deal with Betis, honed his trade in the club’s B team before rifling in seven goals during the second-half of last season.
