Conte's second season in London was dogged by incessant speculation about his future and his apparent dissatisfaction with the club's transfer policy. Sarri says he would like more quality in the midfield area to fit his preferred approach, while adding that he could also adapt to the players he now has in the squad.
When asked at a news conference whether he has spoken to Hazard, Fàbregas said: "I won't lie, I speak to him often".
"Then we will have to see how the transfer market will go over the next few days". I think those who know me well can not define me in this way. I hope we can have a successful season, with new silverware, too.
Sarri believes central midfield is the area most in need of improvement.
With the 22-year-old uncertain of achieving anything remotely similar at Real Madrid, the move to Chelsea could be appealing. "Otherwise they're at a very high level", he said.
Chelsea have Argentina global Willy Caballero as a back-up to Courtois in their ranks, but the 36-year old endured a nightmare World Cup with Argentina and was dropped following a dire performance against Croatia.

Papa John's founder John Schnatter says his use of a racial slur was taken out of context, but he feels "sick" about the incident. Papa John's, based in Louisville, Kentucky, began operations in 1984 and had more than 5,200 locations globally.
"I am happy to be at Chelsea".
Speaking after Belguim's 2-0 win over England in the third-round playoff at the FIFA World Cup, Hazard had suggested he is open to moving away from Chelsea.
Sarri will be looking to get Chelsea back on track after a lacklustre campaign in 2017/18 that saw the Blues finish fifth.
"If I was someone who always anxious, probably I would do another job", he added.
"Our job means risks but there is also a lot of satisfaction".
Bizarrely, Chelsea appear to have buried their head in the sand as far as Courtois is concerned.
"I don't want to make this distinction, I am not bothered about nationality".
"I would like to have fun during the week with him".
