Former Lazio coach Stefano Pioli is the leading candidate for Inter Milan

A Chinese delegation, led by Steven Zhang, son of the owner Jindong Zhang, has arrived in Italy to oversee Inter Milan's latest managerial appointment after Inter sacked Frank de Boer on Tuesday after just 85 days in the job. 

Former Lazio coach Stefano Pioli, 51, is a leading candidate to replace De Boer, although former Chelsea boss Guus Hiddink is also thought to be under consideration. Inter are 12th in Serie A and are on the brink of elimination from the Europa League following Thursday's 2-1 defeat at Southampton.
