Conte is reported to have parted ways with Chelsea, with former Napoli manager Maurizio Sarri expected to be handed the reins at the club.
Conte took the Blues training on Thursday morning, but his exit is now imminent and Chelsea's players had the afternoon off.
It appears Chelsea have finally found a solution by agreeing to pay £50 million, ($NZ97 million) plus £7m in bonuses, to take both Sarri and Jorginho, who remains a target for Manchester City.
But De Laurentiis has suggested that talks are now close to bearing fruit regarding an agreement for Sarri to be appointed by Chelsea.
Napoli is also expecting compensation of around 4.5 million pounds for Sarri, who is still under contract even though he is no longer its coach. "Now it depends on [Sarri] and Chelsea".
Italian outlet CalcioNapoli24 have footage of Jorginho at an airport on his way to London to complete his move to Stamford Bridge and Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis has now confirmed the midfielder has opted to join Chelsea over City.
Meanwhile, sources close to the club have told ESPN FC that Chelsea are set to hand highly rated midfielder Mason Mount a new deal before sending him on loan to Derby.
He did win the FA Cup last season, but he failed to qualify for the Champions League.
The prolonged uncertainty surrounding Conte and Sarri has had a paralysing effect on Chelsea's transfer plans in a window already complicated by the World Cup and compressed by the Premier League's earlier deadline, set for August 9.
The lanky Spaniard, who joined the Blues for a club-record fee of £60 million previous year, didn't have the best debut season in the English top-flight, ending the 2017-18 campaign with 15 goals in 48 appearances (all competitions).
Sarri won plaudits for the expansive passing football his Napoli team played in the three seasons he was in charge, but he failed to halt Juventus' dominance of Serie A and ended his spell in southern Italy without a trophy.
