Chelsea's Nigerian Quintet Set To Work Under New Manager As Conte's Exit LoomsA host of Chelsea's Nigerian first team players are set to get a new handler at Stamford Bridge with several English media outlets including Daily Mail reporting that the club hierarchy has decided to replace Antonio Conte with Napoli manager, Maurizio Sarri.

The future of the Italian had come under the spotlight for much of the summer and it has been revealed that he had agreed to terminate his contract for a pay-off package worth £9million.

Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich is understood to have convened a meeting in Capri earlier this week with Napoli counterpart, Aurelio De Laurentiis to smoothen the edges of Sarri's appointment.

He was deemed to have left his position at the club earlier today, having said his goodbyes to the players and staff at the club's Cobham training ground.

Super Eagles World Cup stars, Victor Moses, Kenneth Omeruo and Ola Aina as well as Fikayo Tomori and Tammy Abraham are well regarded as first team players at the club and will now face up to the tutelage of a new coach next season.

While the other aforementioned players spent time away on loan last term, Moses who has won the Premier League and the FA Cup under Conte made 38 appearances in all competitions last term.
