Antonio Conte has been sacked by Chelsea

Chelsea expect to appoint former Napoli manager Maurizio Sarri as Conte's replacement

Antonio Conte's departure from Chelsea is expected to be confirmed imminently, and the Stamford Bridge faithful are readying themselves for an eighth different manager in seven years.

In his one and only season under Sarri, Higuain enjoyed the most prolific campaign of his career, scoring 36 goals in 35 Serie A games, equalling a record that had been set by Gino Rossetti in the 1928-29 season.

The main man tipped to join Sarri at Chelsea and possibly even be unveiled alongside the new gaffer is Napoli's central midfielder Jorginho.

Napoli's midfielder Jorginho is reportedly linked with a move to Chelsea.

The lanky Spaniard, who joined the Blues for a club-record fee of £60 million a year ago, didn't have the best debut season in the English top-flight, ending the 2017-18 campaign with 15 goals in 48 appearances (all competitions).

This past season, Chelsea struggled mightily, including a stretch from January to April that saw the Blues drop five of seven matches that took them out of Champions League contention.

A good proportion of the 30-plus loan group will then be called up to Chelsea's first-team squad to be assessed by their manager.

"Jorginho to Chelsea is not tied to Sarri". Conte has refused to wave the £9 million salary he is owed.

De Laurentiis has been holding out for the £7m release clause in his former coach's contract, with lawyers continuing to work to secure the move that both Chelsea and Sarri want. The club would need to pay at least another £5m in salary for Sarri.

The Italian's time at Chelsea has been controversial since allowing striker Diego Costa to leave last summer.

Sarri started his managerial career with Pescara in 2005 before undertaking quick-fire spells at Arezzo, Avellino, Hellas Verona and Perugia.

However, Conte's apparent dismissal drew a response from Chelsea's Cesc Fabregas, who liked a tweet a Chelsea fan posted about Conte having been sacked although the Spanish 2010 World Cup victor subsequently claimed he had liked it by accident.
