Antonio had reported for three days of pre-season training with the senior side this week, due to complications between Napoli and the West London club in reaching an agreement over compensation for Sarri.

It is expected that Chelsea will formally unveil Sarri as their new manager in the very near future.

He played 33 times for Napoli in Serie A last season, scoring two goals and creating four more from his deep-lying position in the midfield as they finished second behind Juventus in the standings.

He is the 13th managerial appointment by Blues owner Roman Abramovich since his takeover of the club in 2003, including Jose Mourinho and Guus Hiddink on two occasions.

Jorginho has arrived in London ahead of a potential £57m move to Chelsea, Sky Spots News understands.

Sarri has been Chelsea's top choice to succeed Conte since May, but negotiations with Napoli chairman Aurelio De Laurentiis proved fraught with difficulty.

The Italy ace is set to join Maurizio Sarri in a double deal at Stamford Bridge.

"We are talking about a lad for whom Manchester City represents the opportunity of a lifetime".

Sarri, who has risen from the amateur ranks of Italian football, will be working outside of his native country for the first time.

Winning trophies didn't save Conte being shown the Stamford Bridge exit door as he was dismissed after guiding Chelsea to the FA Cup in May.

Conte produced a record 30 Premier League wins during his maiden season, which has since been thwarted by Manchester City's 32 victories last season, while he now boasts Chelsea's longest consecutive league wins with 13.
