Malaga want Fulham manager Slavisa Jokanovic to take over as their manager this summer, according to a Sky Sports News report.

The Spanish side parted company with former Tottenham boss Juande Ramos and have placed Marcelo Romero, a member of their technical staff, in charge until the end of the season.

Jokanovic took over at Craven Cottage just after Christmas 2015 and helped them avoid relegation, but his contract runs out at the end of the season. Fulham and Jokanovic have opened talks about a new deal, but the Serbian still unhappy about the club’s data driven transfer policy he might be tempted to make a return to Spain.

Ramos left Malaga on Wednesday having overseen a match winless run that included an embarrassing Copa Del Rey exit at the hands of Segunda Division opponents Cordoba. Malaga are currently eleventh in La Liga, having taken 21 points from their first sixteen matches.
