It's been a season for Chelsea that can only be described as underwhelming and as is the way with modern football, a below-par campaign often results in the manager losing his job.

Chelsea are interested in both Sarri and former Barcelona manager Enrique, with sources believing that Conte's successor is most likely to be one of the pair.

Conte ended his first season as Chelsea coach with the 2016/17 Premier League title, but the Blues were unable to retain the league as they finished fifth, but still have a chance at silverware in the FA Cup final against Manchester United.

Luis Enrique and Carlo Ancelotti have been heavily mentioned since Christmas but there's a new man in the spotlight.

Sarri, who has transformed Napoli into Italy's second club behind Juve, has apparently been approached by Stamford Bridge officials but they have failed to trigger his €8million release clause, report Calciomercato. It's not necessarily the "big-name" appointment that many would expect but it would bring some much-needed stability.

While the Italian side may not have gone all the way and won Serie A this term, they have had an incredible campaign and pushed a much stronger Juventus side as far as they could.
