ROMA are reportedly eyeing up former Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel to replace Jose Mourinho.

Tuchel, 49, was sacked by the Blues back in September following a run of three wins in seven games.

He was swiftly replaced by Graham Potter who has struggled to improve the mood at Stamford Bridge.

And while Tuchel’s reign in West London came to a rather abrupt end, he did enjoy success through their 2021 Champions League triumph.

According to Gazzetta dello Sport, the German coach is now attracting interest from Roma.

That is because Mourinho‘s future at the Serie A giants is become increasingly uncertain.

Roma sit fourth in the Italian top flight, narrowly inside the Champions League places on goal difference.

They are also still in the Europa League and will face Real Sociedad for a place in the quarter-finals.

But Mourinho’s antics have sought negative attention in recent weeks.

Last month he was sent off for the third time this season for raging at the fourth official during Roma’s defeat to Cremonese – the Italian minnows’ first Serie A win for 27 years.


The club were then forced to deny the Portuguese coach booed a Lazio U14 player and urged academy players to feign injury during a youth team game.

As well as Tuchel, Roma are also looking at Inter Milan boss Simone Inzaghi as a potential new manager.

Meanwhile, Mourinho, who has one year left on his contract at Roma, has been linked with a shock return to the Premier League to replace David Moyes at West Ham.
