Chelsea line up move for Eden Hazard's £25m compatriot

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

Kalidou Koulibaly, the Senegal and Napoli defender, has effectively confirmed that Maurizio Sarri will be Chelsea manager after delivering a ringing endorsement of his work in Naples.

The same report says that Chelsea FC refused to comment on reports that they are set to pay £4.4m to release Sarri from Napoli.

The former Napoli boss is closing in on a move to take over at Stamford Bridge, and wants the 31-year-old to come to London along with him.

The 59-year-old left the Serie A giants at the end of the season, but he is still under contract, therefore making the move to Chelsea slightly trickier.

Brazilian central defender David Luiz had been snubbed by manager Antonio Conte and Gary Cahill's poor form meant that Chelsea had to utilize a young Dane called Andreas Christensen in the heart of the defence. In fact, it has been stated that there will be an "exciting new era" for Chelsea.

"They [Chelsea] can expect nice football because he is a very good coach".

"We have now a big coach and we know we can win something with him".

"I hope he will win something with Chelsea because he's a nice coach".

The polish on Conte's tenure at Chelsea has become tarnished both at boardroom level and amongst his players.

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.

Golovin has been with CSKA his entire professional career after progressing through their youth ranks and has developed in to one of the best players in Russian football since breaking in to the first team set-up three years ago.

Sarri had been in charge of Napoli since 2015.
