Former Derby County manager Paul Clement has been touted as a potential option for Swansea City according to the Derby Telegraph (via the Sun).
The former Real Madrid assistant manager was sacked by the Rams back in February after just seven months in charge following the collapse of their automatic promotion hopes.
Having worked with Carlo Ancelotti’s right hand man at Chelsea, Paris Saint-Germain and the La Liga giants, his arrival at the iPro Stadium was considered somewhat of a coup at the time.
However, all did not go to plan for the 49-year old and he saw his side crumble for table toppers into playoff hopefuls after a run of seven games without a win.
He was sacked and replaced by academy coach Darren Wassell until the end of the season, though the club could yet well find themselves in the Premier League next term after all.
Still, the Swans are thought to consider him a viable option as they plot their next move managerially, having all but secured Premier League survival.
Italian Francesco Guidolin is currently in charge, and while the former Udinese coach may stay on in the summer, it is also understood Sheffield Wednesday boss Carlos Carvalhal is firmly on their radar.
Derby find themselves four points clear of the Owls in fifth and nine points off the playoff chasing pack as things stand, needing a win at Bristol City tomorrow to all but confirm their position as a playoff team.
Does Clement deserve a chance in the Premier League? Can Sheffield Wednesday afford to lose Carvalhal?
