The sacking of Graham Potter from Chelsea has sparked a flurry of speculation about who will be the next Leicester City manager. Rafael Benitez, Jesse Marsch, Ralph Hasenhuttl and Adi Hutter are all being considered for the role.
Marco Silva has emerged as a surprise candidate for the Chelsea job, while Julian Nagelsmann has been approached about the possibility of taking over from Potter. However, Nagelsmann has declined the offer.
Liverpool have identified Chelsea and England midfielder Conor Gallagher, 23, as a potential summer signing. Arsenal are also looking to strengthen their midfield with Amadou Onana, Moises Caicedo and Declan Rice all on their radar.
Newcastle United are favourites to sign Leicester City and England midfielder James Maddison, 26. Chelsea are reportedly willing to pay up to £90 million to fend off Real Madrid’s interest in Reece James, 23. Aston Villa is a more realistic destination for Southampton and Ghana defender Mohammed Salisu, 23, than Chelsea and Manchester United.
Liverpool are also interested in Eintracht Frankfurt and Denmark midfielder Jesper Lindstrom, 23, but face competition from Arsenal. Premier League clubs are monitoring South Korea midfielder Lee Kang-in, 22, who is expected to leave Mallorca in the summer.
The managerial situation at Leicester City and Chelsea is set to be an intriguing one this summer, with a number of high-profile names being linked with both clubs. Liverpool and Arsenal are also looking to strengthen their squads with a number of signings, while Premier League clubs are keeping an eye on Lee Kang-in. It promises to be an exciting transfer window for all involved.
