Frank Lampard is poised to put himself forward to take over at Leicester should Brendan Rodgers leave to replace Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at Manchester United.
Lampard has been without a job since being sacked as Chelsea boss in January of this year, but has gone closing to finding a new employer in recent months.
Crystal Palace, Newcastle and Norwich have all looked at the former England midfielder, but they've ended up with different managers.
The next potential vacancy in the Premier League is at the King Power Stadium, with Rodgers currently No1 contender to come in at Old Trafford.
And according to Eurosport, Lampard is keeping 'half an eye' on the Foxes situation in case the position becomes available.
The 43-year-old is said to be cautious about choosing the right club for the next step of his managerial career.
He is eager to make a return to the dugout in the English top-flight so is holding out hope that an 'ideal opportunity', which Leicester might be, will come up before the end of the season.
Do you think Leicester would take Lampard? Let us know in the comments section.
The closest he has come to making a comeback was when Norwich parted ways with Daniel Farke recently.
He had successful talks with the Canaries and according to reports was on the brink of becoming their new manager.
However, after it had come down to a two-man race with Dean Smith, Lampard pulled out of the running and left the former Aston Villa boss to take charge.

The Blues legend had reservations about taking charge of Newcastle too, who are also in a precarious position near the bottom of the Premier League table.
Leicester would be a totally different kettle of fish, with expectations much more similar to the ones he was under at Stamford Bridge.
And with him failing to match up to those, it remains to be seen if the Foxes hierarchy would take him on.
