Gattuso in line to replace Ancelotti at Napoli

Gennaro Gattuso is a top candidate in line to become Napoli manager if Carlo Ancelotti leaves the club.

A poor run of form and disputes between the players and club president Aurelio De Laurentiis off the pitch have seen Napoli suffer a dismal season.

Gattuso, a former AC Milan manager, may become the next manager as the Serie A side is considering their options, SkySports report.

Napoli face Genk on Tuesday in the Champions League and a defeat could spell the end of Ancelotti's time in charge.

SkySports further understands that Everton is a possible destination for the former Chelsea manager if he is sacked.

Gattuso in his playing days won two Serie A and two Champions League titles in 13 years at AC Milan where he played under Ancelotti.
