REVEALED: Chelsea agree terms with Sarri; target 3 recommended signings

Chelsea have agreed terms with Maurizio Sarri over a contract.

Rai says Chelsea have a deal in place with Sarri and also assured him they will seek to sign at least two of the three Napoli players he's recommended.

Elseid Hysaj, Raul Albiol and Dries Mertens are the three Azzurri stars now being discussed between Sarri and Chelsea.

The final step is to negotiate with Napoli president Aurelio de Laurentiis to secure a release from his contract for Sarri.

With Albiol lined up, it's also suggested David Luiz could move from Chelsea as a direct replacement.

The key now is De Laurentiis and his willingness to drop Napoli's original compensation demands so to allow Sarri to move on.
