Former Brighton manager Roberto De Zerbi is the early front-runner to replace Mauricio Pochettino at Chelsea, according to the bookmakers.

The Blues and Pochettino parted ways by mutual consent on Tuesday night, after the Blues finished sixth in the Premier League in a trophy-less season.

The bookmakers believe the London club will now turn to highly-rated ex-Seagulls chief, De Zerbi.

Brighton announced earlier this month that the Italian would be moving on at the end of the season, and Coral is 5/2 that the news has paved the way for him to take the reins at Stamford Bridge.

“Roberto De Zerbi was linked with the Chelsea job last summer,” Coral’s John Hill told FreeTips.com.

“After leaving Brighton, we make him the favourite to fill the hot seat now at Stamford Bridge.”

His biggest rival for the post is believed to be current Ipswich Town boss Kieran McKenna, while two ex-Chelsea managers have been priced up for the role.

Thomas Tuchel is 8/1 for a shock return to Stamford Bridge this summer, while it is 25/1 that Jose Mourinho reunites with the Blues.

“Ipswich Town’s Kieran McKenna is second best in our betting,” Hill added.

“We have also seen some early support for Jose Mourinho in what would be a sensational return to Stamford Bridge.”
