Napoli boss Maurizio Sarri is the latest man to be linked with the West Ham manager’s job amid speculation over Slaven Bilic’s future.

The Daily Express say Bilic is close to being axed after the Hammers’ poor start to the season and that Sarri is in the frame to replace him.

Sarri has two years left on his Napoli contract, which reportedly includes a buy-out clause of around £7.5m.

The Express say West Ham would be willing to pay that in order to take him to the London Stadium.

There is also speculation over the future of Crystal Palace manager Frank De Boer after his team’s poor start to the campaign.

The Daily Mail say former Eagles and England boss Sam Allardyce could return to Palace if De Boer is fired.

The Daily Mirror say another former England manager, Roy Hodgson, is in the frame to take over at Selhurst Park.

Meanwhile, Chelsea have been linked with Uruguay Under-18 captain Sebastian Caceres.

The Sun say Chelsea and Premier League rivals Liverpool have both sent scouts to watch the defender, who plays for Uruguayan club Liverpool FC.

And the Express claim Chelsea are keen to sign Bayer Leverkusen midfielder Atakan Akkaynak.
