Conte to be sacked and replaced by Sarri

That is why Chelsea's likely signing of Napoli boss Maurizio Sarri bodes well for Hazard's future.

The deal, however, is now on hold as Chelsea wait to officially sack Conte and appoint Sarri as his successor.

It will not come as a surprise to many with Sarri being strongly linked to the Chelsea role for many months.

Giovanni Martusciello ― who he worked with at Empoli ― will be lured away from Inter Milan whilst former Chelsea favourite Gianfranco Zola, whose managerial career has not been a success, will also be part of the coaching staff.

"You can expect nice football because he's a very good coach", said Koulibaly, speaking after Senegal's 2-1 World Cup win over Poland in Moscow.

"I can only speak on behalf of my client and reaffirm that there has not yet been any meeting with the Chelsea management".

When we think of teams making transfers, we usually assume they are talking about signing or selling players.

Conte was known to be disappointed with the business that the club did last summer, leading to a rise in tensions between himself and the club's hierarchy.

His return over the last two seasons is nothing short of impressive, with Mertens directly contributing to 83 goals in 94 appearances, missing just four games during this period.

The big challenge though which the incoming Chelsea manager would face is to convince the board to sign the Belgium striker as he is already 31-years old and would cost a fortune in the transfer market.

Chelsea has had a disastrous defence to their Premier League title as the West London club finished fifth on the League table and unable to secure a Champions League spot for next campaign.
