Claudio Ranieri indicates that he could be tempted by the current managerial vacancy at West Bromwich Albion.

Claudio Ranieri has hinted that he could be interested in becoming the new manager of West Bromwich Albion.

The Baggies are seeking a new boss following Roy Hodgson's decision to take over England at the end of the season.

When asked by ESPN whether or not he would be interested in the vacancy at the Hawthorns, Ranieri replied: "Why not? Never say never. I will listen to everything. If there is a good project, why not?"

The Italian, who has previous Premier League experience with Chelsea, has been out of work since being sacked by Inter Milan in March.
