Maurizio Sarri has put the pen to paper on a deal to become Chelsea head-coach.
Gianfranco Zola will be his assistant, according to Sky in Italy.
Chelsea confirmed the club have parted ways with Antonio Conte earlier this morning and the former Napoli manager has reportedly completed the takeover at Stamford Bridge.
The 60-year-old is set to be unveiled as the new Chelsea boss in the next few hours.
Gianfranco Zola will have an important role in Sarr’s coaching staff, as well as former Empoli manager Giovanni Martusciello.
