Lazio coach Simone Inzaghi interesting Leicester, Spurs

Lazio coach Simone Inzaghi is being linked with a move to England.

Corriere dello Sport via Fotboll Transfers says the Italian's future with the Romans is in doubt ahead of the end of the season. And his camp have received contact from agents representing Premier League clubs.

Lazio chief Igli Tare has insisted Inzaghi will sign a new deal, but that was a month ago. The former striker's current agreement expires at the end of next month.

Tottenham and Leicester City are showing interest in Inzaghi. However, they have not yet offered him a contract.

Everything could hinge on Foxes manager Brendan Rodgers' plans as he is a target for Spurs. Should Rodgers depart Leicester, then the Foxes will move for the Italian, with Inzaghi's candidacy strengthened by the success Claudio Ranieri enjoyed at King Power stadium.

However, should Rodgers choose to stay with Leicester, then Spurs, which are seeking a new permanent manager after the dismissal of Jose Mourinho, will move for Inzaghi as an alternative.
