Chelsea to hire Maurizio Sarri after finally sacking Antonio Conte

Conte's firing imminent as Sarri waits in the wings Moses Misses Blues' First Training Session - Latest football news in Nigeria

Yet the deal has been held up in a squabble about compensation owed to the Italian club, meaning that Conte has weirdly started the pre-season training schedule at Chelsea as he waits to be fired. This remains a problem for all four parties involved. Why?

The future surrounding current Chelsea manager Antonio Conte just seems to rumble on and on.

Sarri did an impressive job on a small budget at Napoli, but Chelsea's squad don't look obviously well-suited to playing his preferred high-pressing style.

The 26-year-old was reportedly set to join champions Manchester City, but, according to De Laurentiis, the player would prefer to live in London.

However, despite what De Laurentiis has said, Man City believe they remain in pole position to sign Jorginho. "City won't dominate the way they dominated this past year, I'm nearly certain about that".

Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis has announced that Chelsea are close to appointing Maurizio Sarri as their new manager.

Chelsea are already working hard to secure their first transfer targets, despite a lack of clarity at the management level.

Chelsea have also been in talks to sign midfielder Aleksandr Golovin from CSKA Moscow, defender Daniele Rugani from Juventus and goalkeeper Alisson Becker from Roma.

It's been a frustrating summer for Chelsea fans thus far, as after missing out on Champions League football, they've yet to see any reinforcements arrive.

Golovin impressed for Russian Federation in this summer's World Cup and will also be a worthy addition in midfield.

It proved a fractious campaign for the west-London club, with Conte outspoken about the congested Christmas fixture list and at times visibly agitated in news conferences.

But De Laurentiis has suggested that talks are now close to bearing fruit regarding an agreement for Sarri to be appointed by Chelsea.
