The Northern Irish manager is allegedly on a four-man shortlist to replace Antonio Conte.
According to the Daily Express, the Celtic manager, Brendan Rodgers is included on a four-man shortlist to succeed Antonio Conte at Chelsea.
While his departure is unconfirmed, it is widely expected that Conte will leave the club in the summer transfer window. Thus, the process of identifying replacements has seemingly begun.
Max Allegri and Maurizio Sarri are allegedly being considered for the post. Additionally, the Blues are keeping an eye on Luis Enrique – who has also been linked with a move to Arsenal in recent weeks.
If Chelsea were to appoint Rodgers, it would be a reunion for the former Liverpool boss.
The former Swansea manager spent four years with our youth and reserves team before being named as the Reading manager.
It will be interesting to see how this story develops as we approach the end of the season.

ADL on Chelsea managerial target: ‘If they pay the clause I can’t do anything’
Napoli are currently scoreless against Milan in a match they desperately need to win to keep pace with Juventus at the top of the table. Ahead of the fixure Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis spoke about Maurizio Sarri’s future:
“No need for more complexities: Sarri’s contract is already good and has been signed and deposited for three years. In football every year everything is questioned regardless of the condition of the contract.
“In this case, there is a termination clause of 8 million euro if someone were to present themselves and he wanted to aspire to something different, to go away. I could not oppose it. It is foreseen by the contract, everyone must make reasoning of entrepreneurial possibilities and sporting ability.”
Sarri has reportedly said that he would listen to the offer if Chelsea were to produce one in the near future.
