Sarri wants four Napoli players at Stamford Bridge

Maurizio Sarri will reportedly seek to bring four Napoli players to Chelsea, once he is appointed as the head coach of the Premier League outfit.

The 59-year-old has been in talks with Blues' officials over the past few weeks and he is supposedly close to being announced as Antonio Conte's successor.

As such, the Italian has already made up his shortlist for the summer and four Napoli players in Dries Mertens, Elseid HysajJose Callejon and Raul Albiol are topping his wishlist.

Nonetheless, Sarri is likely to have a stiff task to do business with his former club given his shrewd relationship with president Aurelio de Laurentiis while the Italian side are not so keen on losing several players at one go.

Napoli are widely expected to sanction the exit of midfielder Jorginho to Manchester City but new boss Ancelotti may not entertain further exits as he aims to end the club's long wait for the Serie A crown.
