Carlo Ancelotti has reportedly agreed a deal to takeover at Napoli this summer, adding more fuel to speculation over who will next take the Chelsea helm.
According to Italian news outlet CalcioNapoli24, former Chelsea boss Ancelotti has been lined up by Napoli chairman Aurelio De Laurentiis for a month and the Italian coach is dedicated to the new project.
The report suggests that Ancelotti could officially put pen to paper on taking reigns of a team that finished second in the table, marginally losing out in the race for the Scudetto.
Current Napoli manager Maurizio Sarri has been heavily rumoured to replace Antonio Conte at the end of the season after a falling out with De Laurentiis.
It was reported by La Gazzetta dello Sport that Sarri has a £7.1m release clause and has even demanded his coaching staff to learn English.
The 59-year-old is known for his attacking style of play, which has caught the public eye in recent times and Chelsea are clearly well aware of Sarri’s qualities.
