And sleeping Italian giants AC Milan are ready to make him offer to return to Serie A, according to reports.

They sit seventh following four wins and three defeats in their first seven matches – nine points behind first place Napoli.

Montella has been tasked with qualifying for the Champions League for the first time since the 2013-14 campaign.

Conte spent three years at Serie A giants Juventus where he won the league title on each occasion.

He then left the Old Lady to manage the Italian national side before joining Chelsea.

Recently sacked boss Carlo Ancelotti also remains in the frame after he left his post at Bayern Munich.
