Ranieri wants instant EPL return after Foxes sacking

Football Transfer Centre

Claudio Ranieri will seek for an immediate return to management in the Premier League following his surprise dismissal from Leicester City last month.

The Italian head coach had seen the Foxes fall from champions to a club fighting for relegation in nine months, and this urged the hierarchy to part ways with his services. 

Ranieri's agent Steve Kutner has revealed that the 65-year-old has received multiple offers from both Italy and China, but a return to English top flight remains the Italian's top priority.

"There already has been big interest in Claudio, both in Italy and in China but his priority is to come back and manage in the Premier League as soon as possible," he told talkSPORT.

Italian club Fiorentina are one of the Italian clubs keen on signing the Foxes boss man, with Paulo Sousa tipped to join Juventus - a side Ranieri managed between 2007 and 2009.

Leicester City produced a fine result after the Italian's sacking as they beat Liverpool by a 3-1 scoreline on Monday night.
