Sarri identifies first signing for Chelsea

Italian manager Maurizio Sarri will launch a bid to bring Belgium global Dries Mertens to Stamford Bridge this summer if he is appointed as Antonio Conte's successor at Chelsea, according to reports. Maurizio Sarri is expected to take over from Conte and is familiar with Serie A having spent his entire managerial career in Italy.

And it seems Koulibaly, who played under Sarri at Napoli, knows where his former manager is heading, letting slip the Italian is on his way to Stamford Bridge.

Reports have suggested that part of the deal that will allow Sarri to leave Napoli will prevent Chelsea from activating any of their players' release clauses this summer.

Chelsea are set to replace Antonio Conte this summer following their disastrous defence of their Premier League title.

"You can expect nice football because he's a very good coach", said Koulibaly, speaking after Senegal's 2-1 World Cup win over Poland in Moscow. I hope he [Sarri] can win something with Chelsea.

He also netted 34 times during the previous campaign after being converted to a striker by the incoming Chelsea manager. "At Chelsea I think it will be the same".

Sarri might have his own ideas of what he wants to do with the players or who he might want to bring in and the sooner we can clear this issue up, the better it will be for our plans for next season.

His return over the last two seasons is nothing short of impressive, with Mertens directly contributing to 83 goals in 94 appearances, missing just four games during this period.
