Chelsea have started the season brilliantly and the Blues are reportedly seeking to maintain the momentum under Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri by signing two Serie A stars.

According to TEAMtalk, Sarri has urged Chelsea chiefs to make a £130million double bid for Napoli midfielder Piotr Zielinski and defensive ace Kali­dou Koulibaly.

Sarri worked with the duo during his time as Napoli boss and he reportedly wants to bring them to Stamford Bridge.

24-year-old Zielinski has three years left on his Napoli contract but he also has a rel­ease clause of just under £60million. Napoli are trying to re-negotiate his contract to increase the release clause or eliminate it and Chelsea would need to act fast.

27-year-old Koulibaly has been a long-term target for Chelsea but the Blues haven’t been able to sign the Senegalese international. Koulibaly signed a new five-year de­al in the summer and that could make a transfer to Chelsea even difficult.

Both players have been key players for Carlo Ancelotti’s team so far this season, appearing in 8 Serie A matches and both Champions League group stage matches.
