Fulham manager Marco Silva has done a stellar job at the London club so far this season and the Cottagers are currently eighth in the league table.
His performances have not gone unnoticed and a number of clubs are thought to be keeping tabs on him. A report from Daily Mail claims that Chelsea and Tottenham are eyeing up potential moves for the 45-year-old at the end of the season.
Chelsea manager Graham Potter is under a lot of pressure because of the poor performances of his team this season. The Blues are currently 10th in the league table and they are highly unlikely to finish in the top four and qualify for the Champions league. The Blues have spent a considerable amount of money over the last two windows and Potter has simply not managed to get the best out of his players.
It wouldn’t be surprising if Co-owner Todd Boehly decided to look for a different option at the end of the season. Silva has proven his quality with full him and he could prove to be a quality acquisition for Chelsea.
Meanwhile, Tottenham could lose Antonio Conte at the end of the season.
The Italian manager will be out of contract in the summer and the 53-year-old has not signed an extension with the club yet. Tottenham have the option to trigger a one-year extension in his contract and it remains to be seen how the situation develops.
Antonio Conte could return to Italy at the end of the season and Tottenham will have to bring in a quality alternative if that happens. Silva could prove to be a recent acquisition for the London club. Tottenham have been linked with former manager Mauricio Pochettino as well.
It will be interesting to see who Daniel Levy ends up appointing in the end.
The opportunity to join clubs like Chelsea and Tottenham is likely to be a tempting proposition for Silva and the 45-year-old could be keen on joining them.
He has a contract with Fulham until the summer of 2024 and the London club are reportedly hoping to tie him down to an extension.
It remains to be seen whether they can convince Silva to commit his long-term future to the club and rule out any potential exit in the summer.
