And Wise believes Chelsea should give the Italian the benefit of the doubt - and failing that, they should turn to his assistant Gianfranco Zola.

Chelsea FC finished in third place in the Premier League table in the 2018-19 season following Sarri's appointment as Antonio Conte's replacement last summer.

Maurizio Sarri is set to join Juventus on a three-year contract next week after securing his departure from Chelsea.

Derby County boss Frank Lampard and even Juventus' Allegri remain linked with the job, while Nuno Espírito Santo, Javi Gracia and Laurent Blanc are also claimed to be on Chelsea's managerial shortlist. And the 60-year-old former Napoli master tactician has earned plenty of praise from fans and pundits for his attractive brand of football. The eight straight Scudetti winners have already landed Aaron Ramsey from Arsenal on a free, and are looking to indulge in the potential transfers of more players in the ongoing summer transfer window.

Sarri sparked talk of a return to Italy earlier this week when he admitted it had been a tough first year in England and that he missed his home country.

Speaking this week, Juventus sporting director Fabio Paratici indicated that the announcement of Massimiliano Allegri's successor may not be made quickly.

He said: "We have very clear ideas and we are working". "You feel something is missing". How long will it take? I got a lot of playing time and we won a trophy. "I start feeling the weight of my friends being so far, of my elderly parents who I see so rarely".
