'He's a target man, maybe the best in the world I think'.
Mitrovic drew a blank against Man City on Saturday, but since rejoining the Cottagers in the summer, the 23-year old Serbian global has scored four Premier League goals in just five games - a haul that has got the attention of Chelsea as well as European suitors.
Sarri is just the fourth manager to win his first five Premier League games in charge, and is being hailed as a genius for turning Chelsea around after a hard spell in the final months of Conte's reign.
"We have spoken and I told him he can score 40 goals", Sarri said.
Sarri also challenged the former Lille player to score more goals than he's ever scored before adding, "I think Hazard can improve more". He has struggled this season as well and was dropped from the starting line-up as manager preferred Oliver Giroud over him in the game against Cardiff City.
'When he gets the ball he can hold the ball and we can go with him in deep. "I think there are three teams worse than us [in the division]".

And he was stunned again with a tight decision favouring Mexico's Canelo , on the eve of his country's Independence Day. Golovkin deserves home court this time. "I showed my victory with facts", Alvarez said in his postfight interview.
Hazard praised Chelsea for refusing to panic, however, with the Blues hitting back quickly to carry a 2-1 lead into half-time.
'Eden Hazard is unique, ' the Chelsea head coach told BBC after the game.
Sarri's arrival (the worst kept secret in footballing history), and his playing style seems to have endeared Chelsea's no.10.
Mitrovic mustered 12 goals in 20 appearances for Fulham in the Championship during his loan spell last term and helped the Cottagers in inking their promotion to the English top flight. If he manages to keep the intensity (and the happiness) going, we should be in for a "Hazard special" this season.
"In the last two weeks I have seen four matches of Cardiff and four matches of PAOK Salonika and for me, I thought [on Friday] Giroud was more suitable for this match and Morata more suitable for the other", Sarri said. "A hat-trick comes with confidence, so I will try to do more of this".
