Chelsea may be getting close to signing a replacement for Antonio Conte if reports by Gazzetta Dello Sport is to be believed, that Napoli head coach Mauricio Sarri is very intrigued by the prospect of working at Stamford Bridge.

The Italian tactician has been one of the most consistent coaches in the Italian Serie A this season, leading his side very close to a title glory, as they jostle for the final spot with Juventus. His style at Napoli this season, has been strictly attacking but with a fine balance of not losing out in the battle at the back.

That suits the Premier League demands and certainly interests Chelsea who have made him one of their top targets to replace former Juventus manager Conte.

Sport Witness say the Napoli coach has halted the lease on his home in Naples and although explanations given was that it was for logistical reasons, it could be a good signal for Chelsea that all could be shaping up for them to land their man.
