Maurizio Sarri reportedly agrees a deal to become the new head coach of Chelsea, with club legend Gianfranco Zola returning to Stamford Bridge as assistant.

Maurizio Sarri has reportedly agreed a deal to become the new head coach of Chelsea and will be joined at Stamford Bridge by Gianfranco Zola.

Chelsea have been strongly linked with Sarri over the past two months, but previous head coach Antonio Conte was only removed from his position on Friday.

That has seemingly resulted in both parties looking to speed up a new appointment, and according to Sky in Italy, Sarri has agreed to move to the Premier League.

The report claims that Zola has also said yes to a return to the West Londoners, with the former playmaker being regarded as one of the best players in the club's history.

Sarri will arrive having left Napoli in May, while Zola's most recent role came as manager of Birmingham City between December 2016 and April 2017.
