Destination Everton Or Chelsea? Three Potential Premier League Routes For Inter Milan’s Marked Man Manager Luciano Spalletti

Luciano Spalletti could be the next managerial scalp in Serie A

Internazionale’s loss may be the Premier League’s gain. Luciano Spalletti looks to be on his way out of the San Siro after less than two years at the helm, and falling way short of 100 games in charge of the nerazzurri.

Inter Milan may be currently fourth in Serie A and well on course for a top-four finish but patience from chairman Steven Zhang and CEO Beppe Marotta seems to be running out.

This coming ahead of a crucial derby fixture with AC Milan, who are currently one place ahead in third.

A demoralising loss to Eintracht Frankfurt - via a single Luka Jovic goal across the two legs - has sent them soaring out of the Europa League and put a greater onus on gaining a top-four Champions League qualification spot.

Should Spalletti find himself on the wrong end of the sack race, here are some potential destinations for the Italian over in England.


Marco Silva has his head on the block at the moment. All that money splurged hasn’t got them within a sniff of the upper echelons of the Premier League elite. The Toffees currently find themselves in 11th, battling for mid-table mediocrity, with one win in six (at the time of writing).

Fraud? Snake? Might be no ‘silva’ lining for this story. Spalletti could be a real statement of intent for the ‘other’ Merseyside club.


God knows what’s going on at Stamford Bridge, but if Chelsea are indeed looking for a new captain to steer a ship through choppy waters, replacing their Italian manager Maurizio Sarri with another one is not beyond the realms of plausibility. Chelse are well known for virtually playing managerial bingo, and should they not achieve a top-four spot, Sarri could find his way his way out of west London after just a season in charge

Crystal Palace

We all love Roy Hodgson here at The Sportsman, but it’s clear Crystal Palace need injecting with a bit of spunk. The Eagles have, of course, form for delving into the possibilities offered by the continent’s up and comers; Frank de Boer, say no more. Luciano Spalletti might be the man to harness the potential of certain game-changers such as Wilfried Zaha, Andros Townsend, and Aaron Wan-Bissaka. This is of course, ultimately dependant on Palace staying up this season. They currently find themselves hovering above the relegation zone in 14th, five points clear of the drop with eight games left to play.
