So, Scott Parker could be leaving Fulham this week, and if he does go, the Whites have one hell of a job on their hands to get a replacement in.

Fulham will be quite a tempting job for any manager at this level. A billionaire owner, a strong squad and a lovely part of London makes Craven Cottage a very alluring destination for any manager.

Who should the Whites go for if Parker leaves? We’re going to look at three standout candidates.

In our view, Chris Wilder is the one and only candidate Fulham should be considering at this point.

Wilder is a miracle-worker. He’s been a success everywhere he’s been, he’s a great personality and he plays a system that is easy on the eye and revolutionary.

The only problem is that Wilder will not like working under a Director of Football, so there are a couple of candidates that need considering if he won’t come in.

A former Fulham player, a proven coach at the top level, and an ambitious appointment.

Vincenzo Montella would be a fantastic manager, and he’d be an immediate fan favourite given his previous links to Fulham

Perhaps he’s the man Tony Khan should look towards if Parker jumps ship.

A little bit of a left-field choice, but he has the pedigree that Khan and his team look for in a Fulham coach.

Just like Slavisa Jokanovic was, Garcia is another disciple of Johan and Jordi Cruyff, and his attacking style would bring Fulham back to the glory days of the Jokanovic era.

He has pedigree at this level, managing both Watford and Brighton, and he’s out of a job right now.

This is an appointment that makes a lot of sense.
