Our Chelsea fans here in the Transfer Tavern are looking at who could possibly be replacing Antonio Conte if his time is up at the bridge, even after guiding them to FA Cup final glory. With the latest rumours flying around over promising Fulham manager Slavisa Jokanovic in the market to be a replacement.

Despite winning his first major cup competition against Man United recently, it seems the writings on the wall for the Italian.
Conte had won a handful of games in the Premier League this year, and many of them coming in their late surge for a Champions League spot, with the pressure building up at Stamford Bridge it could mean a huge change in personnel.
