De Zerbi is a strong contender, according Sky Sports, having recently parted ways with Brighton after leading them into European competition last season.

Frank has also impressed decision makers at Stamford Bridge, turning Brentford into a stable Premier League side.

Maresca and McKenna are both coming off successful seasons, having guided Leicester and Ipswich to Premier League promotion, respectively.

Meanwhile, Chelsea have ruled out a move for Xavi Hernandez, despite recent speculations, following his departure from Barcelona.

The club's focus is hinged on securing a coach with proven success and experience within English football.

In addition to Chelsea's interest, Kieran McKenna is also being eyed by Brighton and Manchester United as a potential replacement for Erik ten Hag, should he be dismissed this summer.
