Chelsea have been strongly linked with Fulham manager Slavisa Jokanovic in recent times with Chelsea reportedly looking for a new manager to replace Antonio Conte after a season that saw Chelsea miss out on a Champions League spot.
Fulham are now set to hold talks with Jokanovic regarding a contract extension this summer as speculation regarding the manager’s future continues to grow.
The 49-year-old led the Cottagers to the Premier League through the playoffs last month, beginning their first tenure in the top-flight since 2014. However, he has only 12 months left to run on his current deal with the club.
With Chelsea rumours having grown stronger in recent days, Craven Cottage chiefs are keen to tie down the Serb on a new agreement following their promotion success as well as reward their man for the change in fortunes he has provided since being appointed in December 2015.
The talks between the two parties are scheduled for when Jokanovic returns from holiday, with a three-year deal in view.
