West Ham have struggled to adapt to life at the London Stadium, battling to stay away from the relegation zone throughout the 2016/17 Premier League campaign. It seems that the Hammers have done just enough to secure their survival, but there will be doubts in the boardroom about Slaven Bilic’s ability to lead the club going forward.

Despite guiding West Ham to a seventh place finish in his first season in charge, Bilic has been unable to take them to the next level this season. With their new 60,000 home, the club hopes to become one of England’s top clubs, but they will need a manager of the highest calibre  in order to do so.

There are likely to be plenty of managers willing to take on the project. But, if West Ham do decide to part ways with Bilic, who is most likely to come in as his replacement?

According to bookmaker Paddy Power, former Manchester City managed Roberto Mancini is favourite to land the job. The Italian boss is out of work, having departed Inter Milan back in 2016 and will be keen to get back into the game.

Having won both  Premier League and Serie A titles during almost two decades spent as a manager, Mancini is certainly the kind of big name that West Ham will be keen to recruit. However, the Italian will undoubtedly be concerned about the club’s performances this season and West Ham would have to back him in the transfer market in order to convince him to take the job.

Should recruiting Mancini prove too difficult, they may be tempted to make a move for Huddersfield Town manager David Wagner, who has transformed the club from Championship relegation candidates to Premier League hopefuls this season.

Under Wagner, Huddersfield are currently challenging for a place in the top flight and his future could rely on where they are placed at the end of the current campaign. If they make it to the Premier League, the German boss will likely want to stick around to guide his club into their debut top flight season. If not, he could be a realistic and promising long-term option for West Ham.

Another name that has been linked with the role is former Chelsea player Slavisa Jokanovic, who has performed a similar miracle to Wagner with Fulham FC this season. While he doesn’t quite provide the ‘wow factor’ that would come with somebody like Mancini, he has an outstanding record of pushing clubs beyond their means.

He was brought in last season to save Fulham from relegation down to League One, which he did by the finest of margins. Just 12 months on, they are now challenging for a place in the Premier League play-offs.

What has impressed West Ham most is his desire to introduce youth players into the first team. This is viewed as a big part of West Ham’s future plans and has certainly earned Jokanovic some fans in the London Stadium boardroom. Despite the Serbian coach insisting that his focus is on Fulham, he would undoubtedly be tempted to jump ship, should Fulham fail to reach the Premier League this season.
