Serie A champions Juventus have reached a deal with Chelsea to sign coach Maurizio Sarri before the beginning of the 2019/20 EPL season.
An agreement between the two clubs was reached on Thursday with the deal likely to be completed on Friday.
Maurizio Sarri joined Chelsea in July 2018 from Napoli as he led the Blue to a third position finish in the English Premier League.
In addition to that, he led his side to Europa League title win beating Arsenal in the finals.
Sarri will become the ninth full-time coach to exit Stamford Bridge under the stewardship of Roman Abramovich.

Despite being at the club for less than a year, he was heavily criticized by the fans for his selection criteria.
It will be remembered that in the Carabao finals goalkeeper Kepa refused to be substituted even though they went down to Manchester City on penalties.
The Blues definitely looks like a disadvanted team in the coming English Premier League following the departure of captain Eden Hazard to Real Madrid.
The Belgium captain expressed his deepest sorrow for leaving Chelsea but he termed Real Madrid as his dream team.
