West Ham United 'shortlist Rafael Benitez as potential new manager'

Napoli manager Rafael Benitez is tipped as a potential candidate to replace Sam Allardyce at West Ham United.

Napoli boss Rafael Benitez has reportedly emerged as a candidate to take on the manager's job at West Ham United this summer.

Current Hammers manager Sam Allardyce has been tipped to leave the club when his contract expires at the end of the season, and the Spaniard has been shortlisted as a potential successor, according to The Mirror.

Real Sociedad head coach David Moyes is said to be West Ham's first choice to replace Allardyce, but they could find it difficult to prise him away from Spain so soon.

Besiktas boss Slaven Bilic, a former West Ham player, has also been linked with the managerial position.
