Feyenoord’s head coach Arne Slot has emerged as an alternative option for Chelsea if they are unsuccessful in getting Mauricio Pochettino, according to The Guardian.
The Premier League side look close to ending their managerial search by appointing the former Spurs boss after Luis Enrique and Julian Nagelsmann turned down the job to replace Graham Potter.
However, it has been reported the club are still keen not to rush in their decision-making process with the club still considering other options including Slot and Burnley’s Vincent Kompany.
Slot’s profile has continued to grow as the Feyenoord head coach continues with the Dutch coach previously linked to Leeds United and linked with the vacant job at Tottenham Hotspur too.
Meanwhile, former Anderlecht head coach Vincent Kompany has been thought of highly at the London club after a brilliant debut season at Burnley and securing promotion to the Premier League from the Championship.
The assessments from Stamford Bridge do not stop there either with Celtic’s Ange Postecoglou and Sporting CP’s Ruben Amorim appearing on the shortlist too for Todd Boehley and co.
The Blues are currently managed by former player and head coach Frank Lampard in his second-stint as Chelsea boss. The former England international has returned to the club in an interim role just three months after he was sacked at Everton.
