Sarri has been mightily impressive with Napoli since his arrival, with the Italian helping the the club very nearly win Serie A this season, however they fell just short to eventually champions Juventus by a few points.

Napoli have often been considered as one of Europe’s most entertaining teams, something that’ll surely put a smile on the faces of all Chelsea fans, as he could very well be bringing his free flowing, attacking football to Stamford Bridge, and the Premier League.

If Chelsea do bring Koulibaly to the Premier League, they could very well be a force in the Premier League next season.

The 27-year-old would likely prove a major upgrade on under-performing defensive duo Gary Cahill and David Luiz.
