Napoli's new manager Carlo Ancelotti is interested in signing Chelsea defender David Luiz, according to the Mirror.

Conte leaves with the best win percentage 65.1% of any of Chelsea's managers in the Premier League era.

"Jorginho? We said to ourselves, 'if Jorginho has any requests, we'll take them into account'". His poor relationship with many players, furthermore, heightened the likelihood of the Italian being moved along to make way for Maurizio Sarri, who managed Napoli to their record Serie A points total last season.

The Chelsea players had only received word from Antonio Conte's staff this week that they would be returning for a full pre-season training camp starting on Monday.

Kovacic, 24, was one of two alternative targets briefed to the press by City in June along with Southampton's Mario Lemina, and despite being less defensive than Jorginho, has the technical attributes Pep Guardiola admires in a player.

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

The Blues are set to butt in for Napoli superstar Jorginho, who was initially set to join Manchester City.

.

It's entirely possible that after all the negotiations, Chelsea could stand by Conte as the most efficient course of action.

English champions Manchester City have been the frontrunners to sign Jorginho as Pep Guardiola seeks a replacement for the aging Fernandinho in midfield.

"Jorginho and Sarri together again?"

Conte has one year remaining on his current contract and has already taken charge of the club's pre-season preparations at their Cobham training ground.

Sarri spent three seasons in charge of Napoli but was unable to wrestle the title from Juventus, finishing fifth, second and third. CSKA Moscow midfielder, Aleksandr Golovin looks very likely to become the club's first the addition of the summer.
