Maurizio Sarri is targeting seven major signings this summer which will include a massive raid on his former club Napoli, reports say.
The Italian is on the verge of being appointed the new Chelsea manager, but the Blues remained locked in talks with Napoli and have yet to sack their current head coach Antonio Conte.
Despite the hold up, Sarri is confident he will soon be in charge at Chelsea and has drawn up a massive transfer shopping list.
Sarri has issued Chelsea with his target list and is aiming to plunder Napoli for his favourite players, according to the Mirror.
Forwards Dries Mertens and Jose Maria Callejon, full-back Elseid Hysaj and centre-back Raul Albiol are Sarris four main targets.
The acquisition of all four could mean an expensive summer for Chelsea, but the quartet are believed to have release clauses in their current Napoli deals.
Mertens is set at £27million, Callejons at £21m, Hysajs at £23m and Albiols at just £5m.
However, Napoli are desperate to avoid a mass exodus this summer which would see Carlo Ancelotti under immediate pressure at the club.
Napoli are preparing to lose Jorginho to Manchester City and will do all they can to ensure their star men do not follow Sarri to Chelsea.
As well as the raid on Sarri, the incoming Blues boss is eager to sign up Juventus defender Daniele Rugani and Inter Milan midfielder Matias Vecino.
The Serie A pair have impressed Sarri in his time in Italy and Chelsea has reportedly already agreed a fee for Rugani.
Sarri also wants to move for Nice midfielder Jean Seri, who has attracted attention from a host of top clubs and is in talks to join Napoli.
With Chelseas new manager handing the club a massive shopping list, it could be a hectic summer, but it remains to be seen if the Blues will agree to Sarris requests.
Chelsea have been working on transfers separate from their search for a new manager and one of Contes main issues in his time at Stamford Bridge was that he was not in charge of incomings and outgoings.
