Napoli defender Raul Albiol has reportedly started to contemplate where he sees the next stage of his career.
However, Sarri allegedly wants to take the 32-year-old to Stamford Bridge should he be appointed as the new Blues head coach, although it appears that a transfer for Albiol is not a certainty.
According to Corriere del Mezzogiorno, Ancelotti has already contacted the Spaniard to reassure him over his future in Naples, yet a move to Chelsea would be more lucrative.
The report also suggests that Villarreal are monitoring the situation and could be prepared to offer Albiol the chance to return to La Liga, where he has previously played for Valencia.
Albiol has two years remaining on his existing deal.
