Sevilla coach Juande Ramos is an early candidate to succeed Jose Mourinho at Chelsea.

Ramos, who is a target for Tottenham, expressed an ambition to work in the Premiership this week and is a favourite of Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich.

Ramos turned down Tottenham last month, when it emerged he was waiting for a bigger offer, and he is one of many names on Chelsea's radar after leading Sevilla to two successive UEFA Cups.
