Chelsea Closing In On First Transfer Of The Summer From Serie A

  • GETTYChelsea news Antonio Conte's future at Stamford Bridge is uncertain

Former Napoli boss, the Sopranos-esque chainsmoker and football aesthete Maurizio Sarri, has yet to be officially confirmed as Chelsea manager, although the move is very close to becoming official depending on who you believe.

Napoli's Senegalese worldwide centre-back Kalidou Koulibaly certainly believes Sarri is headed to Chelsea as he told English radio station talkSPORT after his country's opening 2-1 victory over Poland in the World Cup.

While that view is unlikely to have changed, especially considering that Mertens's £24.5 million Napoli release clause expired last week, Sarri has reportedly told friends that he wants to take the forward with him to his next club after being replaced by Carlo Ancelotti at the Serie A club.

Chelsea are expected to announce their decision on a new manager soon with Sarri making much of the headlines as Antonio Conte's replacement.




"At the moment there are a lot of rumours about me, but we'll see what happens and what happens in the future - at the moment, it is only talking but nothing is decided", the 51-year-old said. We know we can win something with him. I hope he can win something with Chelsea.

Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly has revealed that Maurizio Sarri will be Chelsea's coach next season.

Golovin's potential has caught the attention of several Premier League clubs with the Express claiming that Arsenal and Manchester United have held a long-standing interest in the midfielder while Italian champions Juventus have also been linked more recently.

"At Napoli, we enjoyed it so much and the supporters enjoyed it so much, too". I think Chelsea fans will enjoy the style of football he plays.
