The two main candidates are Nagelsmann and Luis Enrique who has been in London to discuss a potential deal.
There is also talk of Antonio Conte returning to Stamford Bridge after his recent dismissal from Spurs.
The former Chelsea manager was in charge of the club from 2019-2021 where he ended up facing the sack after a poor run of results.
The 44-year-old has most recently managed Everton where he guided them to safety in his first season in charge but he was soon to face the sack at the start of this season.
