Rodgers is currently in charge of Celtic and steered them to a 69-game unbeaten domestic run.

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte is believed to be on his way out of Stamford Bridge at the end of the season, but there is no shortage of high quality names on the shortlist to replace him.

Relations between the current boss and his employers have been strained recently and Conte has made it quite clear he is not happy with the club’s transfer policy.

Following Chelsea’s Carabao Cup semi-final defeat by Arsenal on Wednesday the Italian claimed not to have much input in signings. “I think the club decide our transfer market,” he explained. “As I said before, my task is to try to improve the transfer market, from the summer, the club decides every player.”

So if he does leave then who is the favourite to step in? Here, looks at the current odds.
