Report: Italian side could offer Leicester's Cambiasso their bench

Second-tier Italian side Catania could make an audacious attempt to steal Esteban Cambiasso away from Leicester City.

Catania are a club in chaos and the Sicilian outfit may turn to Leicester midfielder Esteban Cambiasso to steady the ship.

Ex-Watford boss Giuseppe Sannino resigned on December 19 and was replaced by Maurizio Pellegrino, but it is being reported that Pellegrino has already been axed after a losing start to life with the Elefanti.

Leyton Orient manager Fabio Liverani is said to be a target for Catania, but they appear to have given up on luring him after being warned that he won't be allowed to leave.

Respected Italian journalist Alfredo Pedullà states that Catania are now looking into the possibility of bringing former Inter man Cambiasso in as coach, offering him the chance to begin his managerial career.

Cambiasso could be tempted by the chance to begin coaching at a club that have recent Serie A pedigree, although they are currently languishing in 19th place in the second division.

Leicester will probably try and prevent any approaches to Cambiasso, but if the player decides the time is right to move into coaching he could still make the switch.
