Earlier this week here at Vital Chelsea, we reported on how one news source, Click Here, was suggesting that this week could see the managerial conundrum solved at Stamford Bridge.

Today, speculation is increasing that a change in the managerial hot-seat is indeed nigh.

The good folk of Sky Sports, are reporting that Maurizio Sarri’s agent has arrived in London, to assist in closing a deal that would see the 59-year-old Italian takeover from Antonio Conte.

Furthermore, another news source, the Telegraph, is insinuating that Sarri has made the Belgian international forward, Dries Martens, his top target.

Martens played under Sarri, at Napoli, last season where he scored 22 goals.

If that deal were to come off, Chelsea, next season, could possibly play with an all-Belgian front three of Hazard, Batshuayi and Martens.

Continuing on the managerial theme, the Chelsea legend Gianfranco Zola, who graced our first team from 1996 to 2003, has admitted that talks have been held about an emotional return as Sarri’s assistant, with the news source, the Sun, carrying some quotes attributed to the Sardinian, quotes which read:

“There are a lot of rumours about me at the moment and nothing has happened. We’ll see what happens in the future.

“But honestly, at the moment it’s only talking, nothing is decided.”

However, despite the fluster of journalistic activity we’ve covered above, we’ll just sit tight and wait for confirmation from the club.

But, we have to say, the mention of Dries Martens being a target is something we find interesting, his goal return in Italian football is more than respectable and he could add something to our squad.

Whether the deal happens or not remains to be seen.

  • yes mertens is a good player regardless of being 30yrs of age, he can be able to play for the nxt four yrs to come. so go ahead Blues sign him

  • I just hope when all this time has been wasted and all the nice players gone off the market with only poor ones left some people fault the coach for Chelsea’s bad showing.

  • Chelsea of this days is failure,bcs they keep on telling lies,tired of about to sign,close nearly and so on

  • sarri wants big bucks spent on new signings.
    so did conte.
    conte was refused.
    why would sarri be treated differently?
    if sarri was to be hired and conte fired, it would have been done by now
    I will not even try to imagine what sarri’s “attractive attacking football” would look like executed by drinkwater/bakayoko/zappacosta etc.
    sari will not last a season.
    logically conte stays…and will be handed the banana skin again, (7-th place next season)

  • I thank Roman Abrahamovic for bringing Chelsea up. But I don’t believe he is passionate about it any longer. Rather than treating the Club like one of his material properties and toying with the emotion of the fans, I suggest he sells it to people who are very passionate as us about the team.
