Chelsea reportedly draw up a six-man managerial shortlist as they consider potential replacements for Maurizio Sarri.

Chelsea are reportedly prepared to move swiftly for a new manager if Maurizio Sarri decides to move to Juventus.

The Italian has enjoyed a successful first campaign at Stamford Bridge, with a third-place finish in the Premier League being followed by victory in the Europa League final against Arsenal.

However, it has been strongly claimed that Sarri is on the brink of becoming the new boss of Juventus after the departure of Massimiliano Allegri.

Club officials have been left to consider potential replacements for Sarri as they look to avoid a second summer of uncertainty over the main position in the dugout.

According to The Express, six names are currently on the shortlist, including former midfielder Frank Lampard and ex-assistant Steve Holland.

Allegri is also said to be under consideration, as are Nuno Espirito Santo and Javi Gracia of Wolverhampton Wanderers and Watford respectively.

Chelsea could also move for Erik ten Haag, who guided Ajax to the Champions League semi-finals this season.
