If Sarri is appointed manager at Chelsea, he is keen to target some of his former players, including Senegal worldwide defender Koulibaly.

The defender played in Senegal's 2-1 victory over Poland at the World Cup in Russian Federation and made the revelation when speaking to journalists after the game.

And Chelsea aren't the only club with an interest in the forward.

Although a deal between Sarri and Chelsea has not been reached, Koulibaly said: "They [Chelsea] can expect nice football because he is a very good coach".

"I can only speak on behalf of my client and reaffirm that there has not yet been any meeting with the Chelsea management".
