    Rodgers‘ side is winless and has lost a whopping six straight matches out of their first seven games of the season.

    According to the Telegraph, the club’s decision makers are thinking ahead and will consider a swoop for Dyche if their current boss leaves from the dugout during the international break.

    The ex-Burnley boss was sacked in April after nine-and-a-half years at Turf Moor with the club embroiled in a heated relegation scrap that saw them drop to the Championship.

    Leicester are likelier to move for a manager with Premier League experience should Rodgers depart from the King Power Stadium.

    Dyche spent seven seasons in the Prem with Burnley and even took them to Europe in 2018.

    Rodgers saw his team’s misery extend on Saturday after a 6-2 thrashing at Tottenham.

    The ex-Liverpool boss stated he will always have tremendous respect for Leicester’s owners no matter what their decision is regarding his future.

    Rodgers said: “Whatever happens I’ll have a huge amount of respect for them [the owners] because they’ve given me great support.

    “I understand the game. The scoreline didn’t reflect the game but the bottom line is it’s a heavy defeat.

    “They’ve given me brilliant support. Whatever happens to me at Leicester, whether I stay and fight on, I’ll always respect them.”
