CESC FABREGAS

MONACO: Monaco berharap dapat menandatangani pemain tengah Chelsea, Cesc Fabregas bulan ini.

Fabregas kurang mendapat tempat dalam kesebelasan utama di bawah kendalian Maurizio Sarri dan hanya beraksi satu perlawanan Liga Perdana musim ini.

Kontraknya bersama kelab tamat penghujung musim dan pengurus Monaco, Thierry Henry berhasrat membawa bekas rakannya di Arsenal itu ke Perancis.

Monaco kini di kedudukan ke-19 dalam Ligue 1 dan terdesak meraih mata untuk melonjak daripada zon penyingkiran.

Monaco turut menimbangkan untuk membawa masuk Gary Cahill di samping pemain Arsenal, Laurent Koscielny dan bekas pertahanan Real Madrid, Pepe turut berada dalam radar.

Minggu lalu, Sarri bertegas menyatakan Chelsea mesti mencari pengganti Fabregas jika pemain Sepanyol berusia 31 tahun itu meninggalkan kelab.

Pemain tengah itu terlepas aksi menentang Southampton awal pagi esok akibat kecederaan leher.

Sarri berkata: 'Dalam situasi ini kami hanya ada Jorginho dan Fabregas. Menjadi masalah besar jika ketiadaan Fabregas. Saya mahu dia kekal.

“Jika Cesc pergi, kami perlu membeli pemain lain dan ia tidak mudah kerana secara teknikalnya, Cesc pemain sangat penting dan sukar mencari pemain yang mempunyai karakter seperti dia di pasaran.” - AGENSI

MONACO: Monaco are growing hopeful of sealing a January transfer for Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas.

Fabregas has been frustrated by a lack of opportunities under Maurizio Sarri and has started only one Premier League game this season.

His current deal with the club expires at the end of this season and Monaco boss Thierry Henry is keen to tempt his former Arsenal team-mate to France.

Monaco are 19th in Ligue 1 and desperately need points to flee the relegation zone.

Monaco are also considering a January move for Gary Cahill, while they have discussed Arsenal's Laurent Koscielny and the former Real Madrid defender Pepe as alternatives.

Last week, Sarri insisted Chelsea must sign a replacement for Fabregas if the 31-year-old Spaniard leaves the club.

The midfielder is out of tonight's match against Southampton with a neck problem.

Sarri said: 'In this position we have only Jorginho and Fabregas and it would be a very big problem to be without Cesc. I want him to stay.

'If Cesc will go, then I think we need to buy another player, and it's not easy because technically Cesc is a very important player, and it's very difficult to find in the market a player with these characteristics.'
