Roberto Mancini is being eyed by West Ham as a potential replacement for Slaven Bilic, according to reports in Italy.
Bilic is under pressure after a miserable start to the season for the Hammers.
They are currently sitting 18th in the Premier League, having lost five of their opening six games, and have already been knocked out of the Europa League.
According to Calciomercato, Mancini is now being lined up as a possible replacement at West Ham should Bilic be shown the door.
The Italian, who led Manchester City to the Premier League title in 2012, is currently without a club after being sacked by Inter Milan in August.
