Jorginho was one of Napoli's best players in finishing second in Serie A last season to Juventus.
With Sarri's arrival in west London now seemingly imminent, how could the Blues line up under his management?
Brazil and Roma No.1 Alisson is another player now in talks with Chelsea, with current goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois heavily linked to Real Madrid.
Sarri started his managerial career with Pescara in 2005 before undertaking quick-fire spells at Arezzo, Avellino, Hellas Verona and Perugia.
The same goes for Eden Hazard and Thibaut Courtois, while Cesar Azpilicueta is having time off after Spain's elimination.
This past season, Chelsea struggled mightily, including a stretch from January to April that saw the Blues drop five of seven matches that took them out of Champions League contention.
"Jorginho and Sarri together again?"
An agreement in principle is in place to bring Sarri to Stamford Bridge, but Chelsea still need to work with Napoli to secure his release from his contract.
He may decide that he wants Blackman to stay around and gain experience of being in the first team at the Premier League club.
The Napoli striker has become one of Europe's top forwards last season as he moved from a winger to a central striker.
De Laurentiis also said that Jorginho would be waiting for Sarri, 59, should he arrive in London.
Jorginho is a big coup for Chelsea. Ronaldo's arrival in Turin has presented a problem to the Argentine and his future is definitely up in the air. He was on sensational form last season at both ends of the pitch, scoring five goals, including a brilliant victor against Juventus towards the end of the season.
Conte won the Premier League in his first season at the club in 2017, followed by the FA Cup in May of this year.
