1. Antonio Conte

Conte is currently without a job, so his history of success with Chelsea and every other club he's managed makes him an ideal candidate.

The 52-year-old manager has won 9 trophies with Bari, Juventus, Chelsea, and Inter Milan. He won the Premier League and the FA Cup titles at Chelsea.

Lampard is a Chelsea and England legend, but his managerial career has not been impressive. After one year at Derby County, he moved to Chelsea in 2019 and left two years later.

Lampard, 43, lost two finals in two years at Chelsea. Despite his bad results at the London club, his performances at Derby proves he can build an average team into high-performers. It is a transition stage for Newcastle, and a coach like Lampard will fit perfectly to mold it into a top club when backed with money.

3. Lucien Favre

Favre's most recent job was at Borussia Dortmund between 2018 and 2020. He led the club to a DFL-Super Cup title win in 2019, after defeating Bayern Munich 2-nil in the final.
