Bristol City boss Lee Johnson is on Fulham’s radar ahead of this summer.
The Cottagers are in the hunt for a new manager after sacking Claudio Ranieri yesterday and could turn to the highly-rated Johnson, as per a report by Bristol Live.
Kilmarnock’s Steve Clarke and former Huddersfield Town boss David Wagner are also being linked with the vacant position.
Fulham were promoted to the Premier League last season under Slavisa Jokanovic but have had a disastrous campaign in the top flight. They are currently 19th and 10 points from safety so are already planning for life in the second tier next season. Their former midfielder Scott Parker has been placed in caretaker charge.
Lee Johnson took over Bristol City in 2016 having previously managed Oldham Athletic and Barnsley. His Robins side have been in the Championship since then, finishing comfortably mid-table bar one relegation battle in the 2016/17 season. He guided the Ashton Gate side to the Carabao Cup Semi-Final last season against Manchester City.
Johnson’s side have been impressive in this campaign and are in the Play-Offs at the moment. His team plays an attacking and attractive style of play and are a tough side to break down.
Bristol City fans will be keen to hold onto him in the summer but there is always bound to be speculation regarding Johnson’s future with him performing so well. His focus at the moment will be on a promotion charge with the Robins though.
