Paulo Sousa is the favourite to replace Eusebio Di Francesco at Roma and reportedly negotiating a contract termination with Tianjin Quanjian.
The tension is rising at Roma after a poor start to the season, with the next two Serie A games against Frosinone and Lazio believed to be decisive for Di Francesco’s future.
Former Fiorentina boss Sousa is the current favourite for the bookmakers in Italy, ahead of Vincenzo Montella, Antonio Conte, Roberto Donadoni, Gian Piero Ventura and Sinisa Mihajlovic.
Another reason why Sousa is the main contender is a report that he is currently negotiating a contract termination with Chinese club Tianjin Quanjian.
The Portuguese tactician has been in China since November 2017, but the club is currently hovering above the relegation zone with only 27 points from 23 games.
