Maurizio Sarri could take over at Chelsea as soon as this week as the club's long-winded attempts to find a replacement for current manager Antonio Conte look set to finally prove successful.

Missing out on Champions League spots under Antonio Conte was a huge issue and we can not spend another year out of Europe's elite club competition.

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.
