Chelsea are close to securing the services of Antonio Conte after reports claimed he is due to arrive in London to pen his contract.
Conte has been heavily linked with the Chelsea hot seat following the sacking of Jose Mourinho and the Italian is poised to replace interim boss Guus Hiddink at the end of the season.
Despite confirming he will step down as Italy coach after Euro 2016, Conte insisted he had yet to make up his mind about where he will coach next season.
However a deal with Chelsea has been in the pipeline for some time and reports in Italy claim that Conte will arrive in London early this week to put pen-to-paper on his contract.
Although he is busy preparing for the European Championships, Conte is also believed to have given the Chelsea hierarchy a list of players he would like to have on board for next season.
