Chelsea are close to sealing a superb double swoop for Napoli duo Jorginho and Maurizio Sarri, with it being reported that a deal is set be finalised in the ‘next hours’.
This is according to ever-reliable journalist Fabrizio Romano on Twitter, who states that Sarri is ready to seal a move to Blues, and that Jorginho is to be included in the deal.
The tweet also states that the deal is set to cost the Blues £57M (€65M), with the Evening Standard stating that the deal for Sarri and Jorginho could be finalised and completed in the next two days, something that’ll be music to Chelsea fans’ ears.
And so here we go… Sarri is ready to join Chelsea as new manager on next hours! Jorginho will be in the deal and will prefer Chelsea ahead of Man City. ???

Sarri and Jorginho will be absolutely fantastic additions for Chelsea, with it finally looking as if the Blues are starting to get themselves on the ball in terms of transfers this summer.
Jorginho has been labelled as one of Napoli’s most important players last season, as his side were pipped to the Serie A title by rivals Juventus despite them managing to amass a huge 91 points.
Sarri has been a huge influence since he arrived in Naples, with the Italian turning the club into one of the most entertaining to watch in Europe, with his brand of free-flowing, attacking football exciting fans all across the continent.
This is big for Chelsea, and is definitely something that Blues fans will love to see the sight of. Fair play, Mr Abramovich.
