  • Chelsea’s three-man list of Maurizio Sarri alternatives includes Tottenham over-achiever

Sport Witness reveal that Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis, will offer manager Maurizio Sarri to Chelsea in exchange for David Luiz.

Further reports in Italy claim Russian outfit Zenit St Petersburg are also keen to recruit Sarri amid the speculation he has been lined up as a potential successor to Conte at Stamford Bridge. His team play an aesthetically pleasing style of football nicknamed "Sarri Ball, " and his side were bitterly unlucky not to end Juve's stranglehold on the Serie A title this year having amassed 91 league points.

The 58-year-old Ancelotti is said to have agreed a two-year contract with an option for a third with the Serie A runners-up.

Sarri, who has spent the past three seasons at the San Paolo Stadium, has two more years remaining on his contract which runs until 2020.

The speed with which Carlo Ancelotti's arrival was announced suggests Sarri and Napoli knew long ago they would be going their separate ways this summer, which should make the negotiations with Chelsea easier.

Ancelotti has been out of management since he was sacked by Bayern last September, while his last job in Italian football was with AC Milan, who he left in 2009 to become Chelsea boss.

However, the Italian is a hugely successful coach - winning the league title in Italy, England, Germany and France while also coming close in Spain.

Antonio Conte may have guided the Blues to the FA Cup trophy, but the constant negativity portrayed by the Italian and the fact they finished fifth in the Premier League hints that his time is pretty much up.
