Former Chelsea manager Roberto Di Matteo has been lined up as a potential candidate to replace Martin Jol at Fulham, according to the Express.

Jol is hanging on to his job at Craven Cottage after picking up a disappointing 10 points from the club's opening 11 matches, a tally which leaves Fulham inside the bottom three.

The Dutchman has become increasingly unpopular among pockets of the Cottagers' faithful in recent weeks and is subsequently the bookies' favourite to become the next Premier League manager to be sacked.

If that happens then Fulham are likely to turn to Di Matteo, who steered Chelsea to Champions League glory for the first time in the club's history in May 2012.

The Italian has not coached since being sacked by Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich in November 2012, but it's believed he has received numerous offers to return to football management in recent months.

However, Di Matteo is likely to face stiff competition for the job from his ex-Chelsea teammate Dan Petrescu, who is currently managing Dynamo Moscow.
