Former Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini is set to hold talks with West Ham on Monday, with his appointment as Hammers boss expected to be announced this week.
The Mail reports that Pellegrini has emerged as the London club's favoured target to replace the recently departed David Moyes, and the Chilean coach is thought to be considering the offer of a three-year contract with the Premier League side.
The 64-year-old manager has reportedly been targeting a return to European football, and it was confirmed on Saturday that Pellegrini had terminated his contract with
Shakhtar Donetsk boss Paulo Fonseca was linked with a move to the London Stadium, but the Portuguese manager squashed those rumours by signing a new deal to keep him in Ukraine.
Rafa Benitez was another name mentioned, but the former Liverpool coach is still under contract at Newcastle. While Marco Silva was also thought to be on the Hammers radar, but the 40-year-old looks set to be appointed as the new boss at Everton.
