Premier League clubs Chelsea, Tottenham Hotspur and Newcastle United are interested in the services of Napoli manager Luciano Spalletti.
According to Calciomercato, Premier League clubs have their eyes set on Napoli boss Luciano Spalletti. Chelsea, Tottenham Hotspur and Newcastle United are among the clubs who might look to land the Italian manager ahead of next season.
Spalletti joined Napoli back in the summer of 2021. He has done wonders at the club since joining them. The former Inter Milan boss has turned them into a world-class outfit that can win against any team on any given day.
Spalletti’s team have done a terrific job in the ongoing season. They are leading the race for the Serie A title with 65 points out of their 25 matches. Napoli have a 15-point lead over second-placed Inter Milan. And, they are almost certain to lift the title at the end of the season.
His work with the Serie A outfit hasn’t gone unnoticed. A lot of clubs across Europe have been impressed by the Italian manager. And, they could push for him in the summer.
His current contract at the Naples-based club ends in the summer. However, the club does have the option to extend it by a season. While the club would want Spalletti to stay, it looks like he might be on his way out in the summer.
Meanwhile, Chelsea, Tottenham Hotspur and Newcastle United are interested in having the Italian manager on their bench next season.
The Blues have been struggling under Graham Potter, who hasn’t managed to get the best out of the team. And, his future at the club is uncertain. Chelsea are on the lookout for a new manager and are keen on Spalletti.
Spurs have a similar situation with Antonio Conte. While their league position is relatively better, even they have struggled lately. Tottenham are keeping an eye on Spalletti and if he decides to move on from Napoli, they might present him with an offer.
However, the two London clubs will be squaring up against the richest club in world football. Newcastle United are looking to build a winning project and bringing in a manager who has just dominated a top league could work wonders for them. While Eddie Howe has done a terrific job with the Magpies, they could still push for the Italian manager.
Meanwhile, it will be interesting to see if Spalletti is open to parting ways with Napoli and joining any of the above-mentioned clubs ahead of next season.
