Maurizio Sarri to be named Juventus manager in the next 2 days, and the blues list of contenders to replace him include:
- Derby manager Frank Lampard.
- Former Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri.
- England assistant coach Steve Holland.
- Ajax boss Erik ten Hag
- Wolves manager Nuno Espirito Santo
- Watford coach Javi Gracia.
Sarri has already begun to put together the backroom team to help him at Juventus, where he has agreed a three-year deal.
Joining him will be fitness coach Paolo Bertelli, and his assistant coaches are expected to be either Giovanni Martusciello, currently technical collaborator at Inter Milan who worked with Sarri at Empoli, or his current Chelsea assistant coach Luca Gotti.
Pundit Steve Nicol believes Chelsea should go with Wolves boss Santo as the replacement for Sarri.
