Zenit St Petersburg are looking towards Sinisa Mihajlovic as a replacement if Roberto Mancini leaves to take the Italy job.
According to Sky Sport Italia, the Serbian tactician is the favourite to take over the Russian club for next season.
It’d be a natural progression, as Mihajlovic was teammates with Mancini, then his assistant manager at Inter.
Mihajlovic is currently out of work after he was fired by Serie A outfit Torino.
Mancini, on the other hand, is widely expected to be appointed CT of Italy on May 20.
