Chelsea owner Abramovich ponders meeting Sarri buyout clause

Napoli coach Maurizio Sarri is on the radar of Chelsea.

Gazzetta dello Sport says Blues owner Roman Abramovich has been impressed by Sarri's style of football at the Stadio San Paolo.

Napoli currently sit top of Serie A after producing 18 wins, three draws and one defeat this season.

Sarri has an affordable release clause in his contract with Napoli, allowing any club to buy him out for €8million (£7m) up until May 31.

Despite Conte's protestations that he still has 18 months to run on his contract, many believe this is his final campaign at Stamford Bridge and Chelsea are understood to be assessing their replacement options.
