Leeds monitoring Sevilla coach Julen Lopetegui

Sevilla coach Julen Lopetegui is being monitoring by Leeds United.

The Sun says Bielsa's amazing work has been rewarded with a place on the five-strong shortlist for the Best FIFA Men's Coach award.

But if the Argentinian decides to pack his bags at any point Leeds chiefs have another of that elite quintet in their sights.

Lopetegui — running for the gong alongside Bielsa, Jurgen Klopp, Hansi Flick and Zinedine Zidane — is a favourite of Leeds owner Andrea Radrizanni and has restored his name with a stunning spell at Sevilla.

This season, Sevilla find themselves fifth in La Liga and will battle Chelsea for top spot in their Champions League group having already secured qualification to the last-16.

The Spaniard came close to joining Wolves in 2016 before accepting the Spain job and has expressed interest in working in the Premier League one day.
