WEST HAM have earmarked highly-rated Napoli coach Maurizio Sarri as the man they want to replace Slaven Bilic.

Bilic is seen as a dead man walking after The Hammers slumped to the bottom of the Premier League table after losing their opening three games of the new season.

West Ham visit Premier League new boys Huddersfield tomorrow night with time running out for Bilic who survived crisis talks two weeks ago.

The Croat blasted chairman Dave Sullivan on Friday for claiming he turned down the chance to sign Renato Sanches and Grzegorz Krychowiak on deadline day.

It was a clear sign that Bilic, who is out of contract at the end of the season, feels that his time at the London Stadium is coming to an end.
