Former Chelsea and Liverpool manager Rafael Benitez is seriously under consideration by West Ham United with their manager Manuel Pellegrini on the brink of leaving the position.
Manuel Pellegrini is a former Premier League winner with Manchester City but the Chilean has struggled to achieve results for the Hammers this season especially in the last seven matches in the English top flight.
According to the Guardian, Rafael Benitez and Chris Hughton are potential replacements for Manuel Pellegrini at West Ham United.
Manuel Pellegrini has not won any of his last seven league games as the West Ham United manager and his position is under serious threat.

The Chilean manager was appointed as the Hammers manager at the start of last season and he went on to lead the East Londoners to a top-10 finish on the Premier League.
West Ham United finished in 10th position under his watch in the Premier League in the last campaign.
His successor could be Rafael Benitez or Chris Hughton if the Hammers decide to pull the plug on the job of the former Villarreal and Malaga manager.
Rafael Benitez was the Newcastle United manager before the Spaniard left at the end of his contract in the summer and was subsequently named the manager of Chinese club Guangzhou Evergrande.
On his part, Chris Hughton was sacked as the Brighton manager at the end of last season.
