Napoli's Senegalese worldwide centre-back Kalidou Koulibaly certainly believes Sarri is headed to Chelsea as he told English radio station talkSPORT after his country's opening 2-1 victory over Poland in the World Cup.

The Sun says Chelsea are set to appoint Maurizio Sarri as their new boss after reaching a £9.5million agreement to terminate the contracts of Conte and his backroom staff.

Sarri though remains a big fan of Mertens who he converted from a winger to a very successful striker at Napoli who consistently ended up as one of the top goalscorers in the Serie A.

According to The Daily Mirror, Sarri has made the 31-year-old forward his No 1 summer target and wants to play him on the right of a front three next season.

"[Chelsea fans] can expect nice football because he is a very good coach", Koulibaly told talkSPORT after Senegal's win.
