Gianfranco Zola – 6/4

The current frontrunner to replace Steve Bruce is Chelsea legend, Gianfranco Zola. The 53-year-old is currently unemployed after leaving Chelsea off the back of Mauricio Sarri’s move to Juventus and is being touted as the favourite for the vacant Owls job.

After a spell of mixed success at West Ham United between 2008 and 2010, Zola went on to impress with then-Championship outfit Watford, guiding them to a playoff final. However, his most recent stint in the Football League with Birmingham was a disaster as the Italian won just two of his 24 matches in charge of the Blues before he was sacked.
