Atletico Madrid boss Diego Simeone reportedly has his heart set on coming to the Premier League.
Chelsea tried and failed to lure the Argentinean to Stamford Bridge this summer, according to The Mirror, who claim that Blues owner Roman Abramovich could try to appoint Simeone again if things don’t go well under Antonio Conte.
Simeone has worked wonders for Atletico since taking charge in 2011. He has led the club to two Champions League finals, as well as winning the Europa League, the UEFA Super Cup, the Copa del Rey, the Supercopa de Espana and La Liga.
The 46-year-old now fancies a new challenge, say The Mirror, who claim that he could be tempted to move to England before his current contract expires at the end of the 2017-18 season.
Despite English clubs failing to make their mark in Europe in recent years, the Premier League is currently home to many of the best managers on the planet, with the likes of Jose Mourinho, Jurgen Klopp and Pep Guardiola currently prowling UK touchlines.
