Serie A giants Roma are reportedly close to appointing former Fulham boss Claudio Ranieri as their new manager.
According to Sky sources in Italy, Ranieri is expected to fly from London to Rome this week and is seemingly poisoned to make a quick return to management after his Fulham sacking last week.
The veteran coach has previously managed Roma between 2009 and 2011 and led them to a second-place finish in 2010.
Ranieri, who won the league with Leicester in 2016, was shown the door at relegation-threatened Fulham after managing just three wins in 17 games.
Roma, on the other hand, sacked Eusebio Di Francesco on Thursday after a string of poor results including Wednesday’s 4-3 aggregate loss against Porto in the last-16 of the Champions League.
