EPL: Chelsea In For Enzo Maresca As New Manager

By Chimezie Nebolisa

According to reports, Chelsea are holding talks to make Leicester's Enzo Maresca their new head coach.

The Italian, who until last year was Pep Guardiola's assistant at English champions Manchester City, has overseen an immediate return to the Premier League for the Foxes following their relegation 12 months ago.

His style of football is also said to have impressed Chelsea chiefs, with Sky Sports reporting on Monday the Blues had asked Leicester for permission to speak directly to Maresca, whom they added was the London club's preferred choice.

Chelsea are on the hunt for a new manager after parting company with Mauricio Pochettino.
