Liverpool could also steal a march on Chelsea with the prospect of Champions League football next season.

Meanwhile the Blues are pushing for deals to land centre-backs Daniele Rugani and Kostas Manolas.

But their first priority remains sealing a deal to appoint a new manager with Maurizio Sarri and Laurent Blanc leading the pack.

Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis fuelled further speculation that Chelsea are closing in on a deal for Sarri after agreeing to drop his asking price.

He said: “If anyone comes to negotiate for him, I will be very reasonable.’

“I am not a vindictive person and, I repeat, Sarri will always have my thanks.”
