Chelsea are keen to interview Luciano Spalleti as part of their managerial search after the sacking of Graham Potter.
Matt Law of The Telegraph has named several candidates for the vacant Chelsea managerial post. He added Luciano Spalletti’s name to the list and suggested Chelsea are keen to interview the Italian to become their next manager.
Chelsea are stepping up their search for a new manager in the aftermath of the sacking of Graham Potter. With 10 games to go in the Premier League season and an impending Champions League quarterfinal to contest, the club are deciding whether to appoint someone now or in the summer.
While Chelsea only sacked Potter on Sunday afternoon, the managerial list continues to grow. In the two days since Julian Nagelsmann emerged as their top target, there are mentions of Mauricio Pochettino, Oliver Glasner, Ruben Amorim and Luis Enrique.
Luciano Spalletti was also admired well before the club decided Potter’s fate. The Napoli boss has lit up Serie A this season with smashing performances, taking the club to the top of the standings. They remain clear favourites to win the Scudetto well before the campaign ends.
Meanwhile, Napoli are also in the Champions League quarterfinal, and there’s a case made to reach the next stage. Considering these many factors, it’s impossible to see Spalletti leaving at this stage of the season, and whether he fancies a move away remains the question.
Chelsea will take a cautious approach and not look to rush towards appointing a new manager. They might even wait until the season ends to make a decision, meaning they could start their interview process and talk to the many candidates.
Spalletti remains an option and Chelsea would like to interview the Italian. Media reports suggest the Napoli boss could remain an outsider for the job, with an acute focus on Nagelsmann as things stand. Yet, they will not rush and dismiss any other name, meaning it’s an open race for the hot seat.
Spalleti is an experienced option for the job, which has only begun to achieve success in Italy. While he could have his future secured at Napoli, the chance to manage in the Premier League with a top London side may seem tempting.
