Former Chelsea and Leicester City manager Claudio Ranieri is the favourite to get the vacant managerial role at Vicarage Road.
The 69-year-old Italian is best known for his time at the Foxes, where he managed to win the Premier League title in the 2015/16 season against all odds ahead of Tottenham Hotspur. Ranieri has many high profile clubs on his managerial CV, having coached the likes of Valencia, Atletico Madrid, Fiorentina, Roma, Inter Milan and Juventus.
Ranieri's last Premier League managerial role came with Fulham in the 2018/19 season between November 2018 and February 2019 where he was unable to get the instant results that the Cottagers required, being sacked after just 17 games in charge, winning three, drawing three and losing 11. Since then, the Italian has managed Roma on an interim basis, where he won six, drew four and lost just twice in 12 matches in charge between March and May in 2019, as well as taking over Sampdoria between 2019 and 2021 leading them to 15th and ninth-placed finishes before announcing that he wouldn't be renewing his contract with the club.
Ranieri is priced at 1/20 to become Watford's next manager.
