Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers is one of four men currently being considered by Chelsea to replace Antonio Conte this summer.
The Express claim that the treble-winning Hoops boss is a serious contender for the job.
Rodgers used to work at Chelsea’s academy set-up during Jose Mourinho’s first stint at the club.
The former Liverpool and Swansea City boss has earned plaudits for his ability to develop young players.
During his time at Celtic, he has broken record after record and looks set to win back-to-back domestic trebles with the Hoops.
In his first season in charge in Scotland, his Celtic side went unbeaten through the entire domestic campaign.
Following his success in Scotland, he has often been linked with a move back to the Premier League.
Rodgers has been touted as a possible replacement for Arsene Wenger, who is being tipped to step down at the Emirates over the summer.
