Harry Redknapp is reportedly under consideration as Chelsea draw up a list of candidates to become the club's next permanent manager.
The Blues are still on the lookout for a full-time successor to Andre Villas-Boas, despite interim boss Roberto di Matteo leading them to glory in both the FA Cup and Champions League.
Di Matteo has the full support of the Chelsea players, but the Italian has still yet to receive any assurances that he will be awarded a long-term contract at Stamford Bridge.
According to the Daily Mail, Chelsea have outlined Redknapp as a candidate to take the position as the search for a new manager begins in earnest.
Redknapp will be without Champions League football again next season after Chelsea's European triumph demoted Spurs to a place in the Europa League.
The 65-year-old had been linked with Chelsea last summer following the sacking of Carlo Ancelotti, and may be tempted to leave White Hart Lane for a fresh challenge in west London.
