Genoa‘s Academy head coach Cristian Stellini could replace Steve Holland as new Chelsea assistant coach under Antonio Conte.

The former Juventus assistant coach is the main choice of the Italian manager following Holland’s decision to leave Cobham and Stamford Bridge at the end of 2016/17 campaign to join Gareth Southgate as England National Team assistant coach.

Stellini, who currently works with Genoa Academy team, reportedly refused to join Conte’s staff last season despite they spent time together at Siena and Juventus.

It is understood Chelsea are also keeping tabs on Genoa star Diego Laxalt.
