West Ham United boss Avram Grant is under huge pressure to keep hold of his job.
Even the Hammers stay up, says the Sunday Mirror, Grant could still be shown the door.
There are already two managers being linked to the post.
Former England coach Steve McClaren is currently unemployed after failing to survive a season in German football with Wolfsburg.
The other is Neil Warnock, who looks set to lead runaway leaders QPR to top-flight promotion from the Championship for the first time since 1993, but may then move on.
