Watford manager Javi Gracia is said to be under serious consideration for the Chelsea job this summer.
According to a report from the Express, the Hornets boss has earned admirers at Stamford Bridge as a result of the work he has done at Watford.
It was reported earlier this week that Frank Lampard was the man that Chelsea have decided they want to replace Maurizio Sarri this summer, but that has not stopped speculation about who could be in the hot seat next season.
Bringing Lampard to Stamford Bridge may well depend on whether or not Derby County go on to secure promotion to the Premier League later this month.
Gracia’s Watford have impressed this season, playing relatively expansive, but the combative style of football.
A final day defeat to West Ham meant that the Hornets narrowly finished in the bottom of half of the table, but they are due to take on Manchester City in the FA Cup final this weekend.
Who could replace Sarri at Stamford Bridge this summer?
Lampard is the early favourite as he continues to learn his trade at Derby County. His Rams squad face Aston Villa in the play-off final later this month.
Despite his position with the England national team, Steve Holland continues to be linked with a move back to the club.
With the mass exodus that is happening at Atletico Madrid, Diego Simeone may feel like he has done his time with the club.
Nuno Espirito Santo
Nuno Espirito Santo looks set for big things in the years to come as he continues to catch the eye at Wolves.
