Chelsea are supposedly ready to swoop for a number of Napoli players if rumours of a planned firesale at the Stadio Sao Paolo are true.

Chelsea could supposedly swoop for a number of Napoli players if reports of a planned firesale are accurate.

Like many clubs across the globe, Napoli have been hit hard by the financial impact of the coronavirus pandemic, but the Italian club's problems reportedly run deeper than a loss of matchday revenue.

Napoli players are supposedly now in their fourth month without pay, and several star names could be heading for the exit door as Gennaro Gattuso's side look to ease the strain on their finances.

As a result, football.london claim that Chelsea are sure to be in for some of Napoli's most-prized assets if the Serie A outfit do end up offloading a number of players in the wake of the ongoing outbreak.

The report suggests that attacking duo Hirving Lozano and Dries Mertens could both be on Frank Lampard's wishlist, while the Blues are sure to consider a move for the much-coveted defender Kalidou Koulibaly.

However, Chelsea would certainly have a fight on their hands to land the Senegal international, who has also been linked with the likes of Liverpool, Manchester United and Manchester City.

Napoli currently lie sixth in the Serie A table with five wins and three losses from their opening eight matches.
