Fulham head coach Slavisa Jokanovic reportedly emerges as a potential candidate to replace Antonio Conte at Chelsea.

Chelsea have reportedly identified Fulham head coach Slavisa Jokanovic as a potential replacement for Antonio Conte.

Despite winning the FA Cup at the weekend, a report has suggested that Chelsea are ready to part ways with Conte within the next 48 hours.

Napoli manager Maurizio Sarri is currently regarded as the favourite to replace Conte in the Stamford Bridge dugout, but according to the London Evening Standard, Jokanovic is also in contention.

Jokanovic has spent the last two-and-a-half years at Craven Cottage, and Chelsea's near neighbours are currently preparing to face Aston Villa in the Championship playoff final this weekend.

However, with just 12 months remaining on the Serbian's deal and with the Blues said to have become admirers of their former midfielder, an official approach is seemingly not out of the question.

Jokanovic made 53 appearances for Chelsea in all competitions between 2000 and 2002.
