Sinisa Mihajlovic has reportedly been contacted for the Southampton job, but Mark Hughes remains the favourite after Mauricio Pellegrino’s dismissal.
Pellegrino was fired last night after the Saints dropped to one point above the relegation zone and won only one of their last 17 Premier League games.
According to Sportitalia, former Milan and Torino Coach Mihajlovic has received a call about the role.
Multiples sources note that Hughes is the favourite, but if they fail to agree terms with him, then Mihajlovic could be considered.
Hughes was fired by Stoke City in January.
