Brendan Rodgers earmarked for Manchester City manager after Guardiola goes - report
Rodgers has rebuilt his reputation in the Premier League somewhat, after his time at Liverpool ended with the club in a poor position.
The performances he has managed to eke out of Leicester City this season are beyond even their remarkable title winning campaign under Claudio Ranieri, with Jamie Vardy and James Maddison both firing on all cylinders under the Northern Irishman.
Arsenal reportedly made contact with Rodgers over their vacant managerial position after sacking Unai Emery, but Rodgers quickly quashed speculation by signing a contract extension at the King Power Stadium until 2025, worth £40million.
However, he has always been open about his ambitions, and Manchester City may be a harder prospect to turn down.
Pep Guardiola famously hasn't stayed beyond four seasons at either of the previous clubs he's managed, and as he approaches that mark at Manchester City it's unclear whether he'll break tradition at the Etihad.
His current number two, Mikel Arteta, is also thought to be a candidate to replace him, as is former Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino.
However, if Brendan Rodgers can sustain Leicester's form in the first half of the season and secure a top four finish or better, his reputation will only be enhanced.
