West Ham were rejected by Rafael Benitez, Carlo Ancelotti and Roberto Mancini before offering the manager’s job to David Moyes, according to The Sun.
Former Manchester United, Everton and Sunderland boss Moyes has been brought in to replace Slaven Bilic, who was sacked on Monday.
The Sun say Newcastle boss Benitez, ex-Chelsea manager Ancelotti and former Manchester City boss Mancini made it clear they were not interested in taking over at the London Stadium.
The Daily Telegraph say former West Ham man Stuart Pearce could be assistant boss and that Moyes also wants former England defender Phil Neville on his coaching staff.
Meanwhile, former Arsenal player Oguzham Ozyakup has been lined up as a possible replacement for Mesut Ozil at the Emirates Stadium, according to reports.
The Sun have picked up on reports in Turkey claiming that Arsenal are eyeing a £10m move to bring the 25-year-old back to the club from Beskitas.
Turkey international Ozyakup left Arsenal in 2012 without making a first-team appearance.
The Sun also claim Michael Emenalo’s resignation as technical director has put Antonio Conte’s future as Chelsea manager in doubt because he was an ally of the Italian.
And The Times say David Luiz, who was dropped against Manchester United, feels he is being punished by Conte because of the Brazilian’s friendship with former Chelsea striker Diego Costa.
