Sacked by Fulham after their poor start to the Premier League campaign, Slavisa Jokanovic was replaced by Claudio Ranieri.

Since then, the Serbian manager has been biding his time, clearly in no rush to accept just any job, exemplified by his decision to turn down Stoke very recently.

However, with Aitor Karanka and Nottingham Forest parting ways, his mind could be about to change.

According to Serbia’s MozzartSport, the former Fulham manager could be ‘tempted’ by the opportunity to manage at City Ground, where he’d be expected to fulfil the same job he completed with the Cottagers last season: push for and get promotion.

However, since Jokanovic is still being compensated by his old side, it’ll be up to the Evangelos Marinakis to convince him with the right package.

As things stand, Forest currently sit seventh in the Championship table, four points behind Frank Lampard’s Derby, with 20 games to go.

Plenty of time to turn things around, and please a rather demanding chairman.

His first port of call, however, will be to find a way to stop the team from drawing, with the Nottingham based club having tied 12 of their games so far.
