Maurizio Sarri to Chelsea is a rumour that has been dominating both the English and Italian back-pages in recent weeks, but he’s not the only man who could swap Naples for West London this summer.

With Antonio Conte’s future at Stamford Bridge in serious doubt, Sarri has been considered a front-runner to replace him. His stylish football would be welcomed at Chelsea, even if it would be hard to wave goodbye to Conte after the impact he has made in the past two-years.

If Sarri does arrive, he could be set to take one of his most highly-rated players with him, too. According to Tuttosport (via Sport Witness), Kalidou Koulibaly could finally get his much-awaited move to Chelsea this summer.

Chelsea’s long-term interest in signing Koulibaly is thought to be ‘majorly preoccupying’ Napoli. If the price is right, the Serie A heavyweights could be tempted to part with the centre-back this summer. This is one to keep an eye on, especially if Sarri arrives.
