Maurizio Sarri

Sarri has been replaced at the Serie A club by former Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti but remains under contract.

Chelsea have always been rooting to replace their current manager Antonio Conte with Maurizio Sarri, but Napoli have since been holding on to their €8m (£7m) compensation fee for Italian.

Antonio Conte has allegedly left his post as Chelsea head coach.

And now as things stand, they are of the thought that Napoli are using the midfielder to ease Sarri's move to Chelsea.

"The Sarri deal is in the homestretch, it depends on him", he said. It's all in the hands of lawyers. Jorginho? We said to ourselves, "If Jorginho has any requests, we'll take them into account".

"For that, I'll have to apologise to Manchester City". The president of the Italian club, Aurelio De Laurentis, has previously revealed that the player prefers the London club over Manchester City.

"Jorginho and Sarri together again?"

But the Spaniard will face stiff competition from Premier League rivals Chelsea who are also keen on Jorginho's services and are preparing a bid for the 26-year-old.

The Italian transformed the London club from also-rans to champions in his first season in charge but he's now been given his marching orders.

Jorginho's arrival will belatedly kickstart the club's summer transfer business, with Daniele Rugani and Aleksandr Golovin to follow from Juventus and CSKA Moscow respectively.

In his first season in charge, Chelsea set a wins record with 30, finishing atop the Premier League table, comfortably ahead of Tottenham Hotspur in second place.

NAIJ.com earlier reported that Chelsea have reportedly agreed a whopping fee of £68 million to sign Alvaro Morata from Real Madrid.
