"[Roberto] Mancini was in Rome but we didn't contact him, Conte seems eager to wear the national shirt again, [Carlo] Ancelotti opens and closes the door and [Claudio] Ranieri isn't out either".

Antonio Conte insisted that he has no interest in leaving Chelsea before the end of his contract to begin a second spell in charge of the Italy national team.

FIGC vice-commissioner Alessandro Costacurta indicated that he will fly to England to begin negotiations of Conte for the role.

And speculation over 48-year-old Conte's future has grown after Chelsea were beaten 3-0 by Bournemouth at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday.

The boss failed to qualify the national team for the 2018 World Cup even with a playoff attempt against Sweden, and now the Italian Football Federation look for the best name to rebuild the Azzura.

'The names are the ones you know, ' the new FIGC commissioner confirmed after his appointment on Thursday.

Ventura was sacked after Italy failed to reach the World Cup finals for the first time since 1958 and FIGC president Carlo Tavecchio resigned.
