Chelsea could be about to offer recently sacked Leonid Slutsky a job at the club as part of their staff.
This is according to the Telegraph, who state that Blues owner Roman Abramovich is set to speak with the former Russia boss, with Abramovich possibly offering Slutsky a role with the west London side.
The news outlet are also reporting that the former Tigers boss could replace the recently departed Michael Emenalo as technical director, or be given another role at the club should Abramovich offer him a deal.
During his time in charge of the Championship side, Slutsky failed to impress.
In his 20 games in charge of the club, the Russian only managed to win four games for the Tigers, with his side conceding 37 times in the process.
For Russia, Slutsky was average, as the 46-year-old saw his side qualify for Euro 2016, however his team were the only one in the group who didn’t qualify for the round of 16.
During his stint as Russian giants CSKA Moscow, Slutsky impressed, as during his reign, the Russian Premier League side managed to win three league titles, two Russian cups and two Russian Super Cups.
