One fairly highly rated Championship manager is said to be keen on joining Leicester City, if approached. There are also some other realistic suggestions being made in the media at present. If Enzo Maresca does in fact leave LCFC, there are plenty of viable options as Foxes of Leicester see the situation. Although, it will be sad to lose the mastermind of the recent Premier League promotion. In addition to reporting various opinions on prospective and hypothetical bosses of the King Power club, FoL also cast an eye over the revived career of a former Fox.

Former Leicester City and Newcastle United attacker Ayoze Perez has been included in the provisional Spain squad for Euro 2024 - wow

Who'd have thought it, eh? Perez on the international Spain roster at the tender age of 30. He certainly wouldn't have expected to be in this position after such a dramatically indifferent spell at King Power Stadium.

However, whilst at Real Betis the Spaniard has flourished. His record with the Spanish side is as follows: 15 goals and four assists over 59 appearances. Previously, the forward had only represented his country at youth level.

Now the biggest opportunity in his career has occurred after his Green and Whites exploits. Aside from winning the FA Cup with the mighty Foxes, of course. I suppose we have to with him luck now, don't we?!

Leicester City boss Enzo Maresca is said to be on the verge of taking over at Chelsea Football Club - major outlets

If you haven't heard the latest on this Monday evening, Enzo Maresca is ostensibly close to taking the main job with the Blues. The Italian has enjoyed a sterling single campaign at Leicester, attaining respect and reaching goals. He took the Foxes back to the Premier League on his first try. Which was an almost remarkable feat, considering he changed the east Midlands team's playing system to something more complicated. Play which was definitely not usually witnessed in the rough and tumble Championship.

At the time of writing, Maresca hasn't yet agreed to join the west London outfit. Though he is reportedly close to signing. If he does depart it will be a real shame, as I view the unfortunate scenario. Although, an exciting replacement could also transpire at the King Power according to rumours.

"Football League World's Baggies fan pundit, Matt Smith believes that there is a strong possibility that Corberan may be tempted to head to the Premier League with Leicester, should they come calling if their current Italian boss departs for London.

"Do I think Corberan would be tempted by a move to Leicester? I suppose who wouldn't be?" Matt told FLW.

"If you're a Championship manager, you're bound to be tempted by a move to a team in the Premier League who won the Premier League not too long ago, played in the Champions League not too long ago, has a potential as a club to push into the top-six as they did under Brendan Rogers, so I'm sure he would be tempted.

"Obviously, they've got the issue with the points deduction, but I can't see that putting too many Championship managers off a potential move there.

"Whether he'll go or not is a different story, or whether Leicester will approach him of course.

"I'm sure he'll be tempted, but I'm sure he's also got a huge amount of loyalty towards Albion too.

"It'd be interesting to see how that plays out, I'm just not sure that Leicester will go for Carlos (Corberan) in terms of style of play, with Maresca being so possession-orientated.

"Would that change things?

"I'm not sure, Albion can play that way too.

"I certainly think they (Leicester) could do a lot worse than go for Corberan, as many Premier League teams could do.""

There are some other names being bandied around as potential successors to the Italian, as well. A few are mentioned below:

"Imanol Alguacil may not be a name synonymous with all fans of English football, nor the Foxes faithful, but his performances in La Liga as Real Sociedad manager speak volumes about his ability.

Former West Ham boss David Moyes left the Irons at the end of the 2023/24 Premier League season, after a ninth-placed finish in the top-flight and reaching the Europa League quarter-finals.

Rob Edwards guided Luton Town to the Premier League, completing the Hatters' improbable journey from the National League to the top-flight."
