Antonio Conte is focusing on winning the Premier League title and will not approach Andrea Pirlo or any other coaches over a role at Chelsea until the end of the season.
Pirlo was linked with a move to Chelsea by the club's former player and manager, Ray Wilkins, in an interview with TalkSport, but Goal has been told that the links are premature.
However, Conte and Chelsea will begin talks after the season has ended over a variety of matters, including new signings, contract renewals for his current squad and whether he wants to renew his own contract.
Conte is also thought to have made no demands about replacing the outgoing Steve Holland. He currently has his brother, Gianluca, and Angelo Alessio performing assistant first team coaching duties, alongside Holland.
Holland is leaving Chelsea to work with Gareth Southgate at England after an eight-year spell coaching at Chelsea. The West London club announced in December that Holland "will not be replaced" and the situation remains the same
