Official: Napoli sign Chelsea's Chalobah on loan

Napoli have signed Chelsea midfielder Nathaniel Chalobah on a season-long loan.

The 20-year-old is yet to make a senior appearance for Chelsea and has spent time on loan at Watford, Nottingham Forest, Middlesbrough, Burnley and Reading in the past three years.

Chalobah becomes Napoli’s eighth signing of the summer window but the Serie A club’s coach, Maurizio Sarri, admits he is in the dark over the player’s ability.

“I couldn’t tell you, as I don’t know anything about the player,” the 56-year-old said after Napoli’s 2-2 draw with Sampdoria on Sunday.

“If the club picked him then he must have some quality. I train whoever the club puts at my disposal.”
