Chelsea have sacked Antonio Conte according to multiple reports including Sky Sports Italy.

It is expected that Conte's compatriot Maurizio Sarri will be taking over at Stamford Bridge soonest.

The west London club have been locked in talks with Napoli over a compensation package for Sarri since the end of the season, with the Serie A club initially demanding £7million despite already appointing Carlo Ancelotti as his successor.

After winning the Premier League in his first season, Conte could not get a top-four finish in the following season let alone retain the title.

Chelsea are believed to have dismissed Conte, as well as the remainder of his backroom staff.
