Antonio Conte’s officials will allegedly hold negotiations with French side Paris Saint-Germain next week.
The Ligue 1 club wants the Chelsea head coach to replace Unai Emery at the helm this summer, according to L’Equipe.
Conte has been tipped to leave the Blues at the end of the campaign, having criticised the club’s reluctance to spend big this term and struggled to retain their Premier League title.
Emery, meanwhile, is set to leave PSG in the summer having failed to secure Champions League victory, bowing out of the tournament at the hands of Real Madrid over two legs.
Conte’s agent Federico Pastorello will reportedly go to Paris to meet with PSG next Tuesday, one day before Chelsea are due to perform Barcelona in the Champions League.
The Italian is contracted to Chelsea until 2019.
Meanwhile, Jiangsu Suning have reportedly agreed to land Red Star Belgrade striker Richmond Boakye.
Earlier this campaign, Chelsea were linked with the striker, who has netted a total of 23 goals from 28 games during the current season.
But, as reported by The Sun, a deal is in place for the 25-year-old to make the massive switch to the Chinese Super League.
With Blues boss Antonio Conte earlier signed Boakye during his time at Juventus, the move comes as a shock, however, the Ghanaian international is just one of some names to seal moves to China in last days.
Newly-promoted Dalian Yifang have finalized the high-profile additions of Jose Fonte, Yannick Carrasco and Nicolas Gaitan.
