Sarri close to becoming Chelsea's new manager

Switzerland star Xherdan Shaqiri could be set for a big move to Liverpool from recently-relegated Stoke according to reportsMore

Maurizio Sarri is eager to make Napoli and Senegal star Kalidou Koulibaly his first signing of the summer he becomes new Chelsea manager in the near future.

He faces a hard task at Chelsea, where a tighter transfer purse and reduced involvement from Roman Abramovich has led to reinforcements which have recently been made up of players considered to be either second or third choice targets of Conte.

Sarri's italian connections could prove valuable for Chelsea as they look to attract some new blood to Stamford Bridge for the coming season.

Sarri has spent much of his managerial career in the lower reaches of Italian football, although he has won many admirers for his progressive possession based football since moving to Napoli in 2015.

Chelsea now hope to move quickly by unveiling Sarri within 48 hours and axing Antonio Conte by the end of the week.

They've been heavily linked with a number of Serie A players already in Juventus' Daniele Rugani, Napoli's Dries Mertens and Inter Milan's Matias Vecino.
