It has been reported that Fulham are considering on appointing Kilmarnock manager Steve Clarke – someone they talked to back in 2015 – with the Cottagers looking likely to be playing Championship football once again next season.
Clarke, who has impressed for the Scottish Premiership side who is also his boyhood club, managed to guide them from last place to 5th in the league within his first five months in charge.
They now sit 4th, one point off Aberdeen in third and have even hit top spot twice this season, leading to Fulham’s chief scout Brian Talbot heading to Scotland to check them and a few of their players out.
One of those looked at is Liverpool owned Ryan Kent, who is currently on loan at Steven Gerrard’s Rangers.
Currently in charge until the end of the season is Scott Parker, and it’s claimed by The Sun that some Fulham officials are keen for him to succeed and end up get the job.
He remains at 7/4 by Sky Bet to become the new manager for Fulham’s first league game of the 2019/20 season.
Former Dortmund and Huddersfield boss David Wagner along with Steve Clarke (former boss of Reading, West Brom) is at 7/2.
Bristol City’s Lee Johnson – at 5/1 – is also said to be getting looked at after also impressing and taking them to 9th in the Championship. He also has a increase on win percentage with every club the 37 year old has managed (Oldham 35.0%, Barnsley 39.2% and Bristol City 39.9%).
David Moyes and Sam Allardyce are at 12/1. Carlos Carvalhal, Chris Coleman, Claude Puel and Gary Rowett have the same odds with 14/1.
