The Napoli coach has been heavily linked with the manager's job at Stamford Bridge, despite the fact that Antonio Conte remains in charge.
Sarri has been mightily impressive with Napoli since his arrival, with the Italian helping the the club very almost win Serie A this season, however they fell just short to eventually champions Juventus by a few points.
It's said that Maurizio Sarri will jet into London at some point today and will pen a two-year contract to head up another cycle and hopeful return to the title-hunt - with £5.3 million per year set to be the wage handed to the 59-year old.
Chelsea FC are looking to rebuild their squad after the Blues finished in fifth spot in the Premier League last term to miss out on a Champions League spot for the second time in three seasons.
Chelsea have yet to make a move in the summer transfer window, but Sarri will reportedly have £140m to play with (talkSPORT), and it's been reported that the Italian is keen to raid Napoli for striker Dries Merten and defender Kalidou Koulibaly who are both at the World Cup.
