Maurizio Sarri Tells Chelsea To Chase Gonzalo Higuain

  • Maurizio Sarri

Maurizio Sarri wants to kick-off his Chelsea reign by raiding his former club Napoli for Belgium star Dries Mertens.

Senegal surprised the football world after their 2-1 win over Poland to become the first African team to win a match in this summer's World Cup in Russian Federation.

And the 27-year-old defender, Koulibaly, believes that Chelsea will be able to enjoy some excellent football under Sarri who made Napoli one of the most attractive sides in Serie A last season.

But the move will be on hold until Chelsea officially announce Sarri as their new manager to replace Antonio Conte.

The Italian head coach will have his work cut out at Chelsea FC after the Blues finished in fifth spot in the Premier League table last term to miss out on Champions League football for the 2017-18 season. "I'm disappointed that he leaves like this but we have now a big coach (Carlo Ancelotti)". We know we can win something with him.

"They (Chelsea) can expect nice football because he is a very good coach", said Koulibaly. I hope he can win something with Chelsea.

Maurizio Sarri's contractual situation with Napoli is expected to be sorted out by the end of June, according to Sky in Italy. He then tried convincing the club board to make a move for him last summer, but failed to do so once again before the player penned a new deal with Napoli.

However, despite fresh interest from Chelsea this summer, Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis has identified Koulibaly as one of the players who is too important to lose.

The summer transfer window is open and managers are working hard on their transfer targets so we'll bring you all the latest gossip from around the globe.
