Chelsea boost as Napoli drop Sarri price

Chelsea have receive a boost in their attempts to secure sacked Napoli coach Maurizio Sarri.

The Mirror says Napoli are willing to drop the price for Sarri to £4.5million to encourage Chelsea to appoint their former coach.

Sarri has already been replaced by Carlo Ancelotti at the Serie A club but remains under contract for another two years.

A £7m buyout clause in his deal expired on May 31 – and Napoli are left with the prospect of paying him for two more years after potential moves to Borussia Dortmund, Zenit St Petersburg and Real Madrid fell through.

Chelsea are interested in adding Spain defender Raul Albiol to any deal but have still to part company with Antonio Conte.
