*Odds correct as of June 5, 2023

The best bookies have reopened their Next West Ham Manager betting market after it has been rumoured that David Moyes could face the sack. The Hammers line up in the 2023 Europa Conference League final against Fiorentina although there is now speculation that the Scot will stand down after this game.

Rafael Benitez has been linked to the West Ham manager's position on several occasions and has previously come close to landing the role. The Spaniard remains among the favourites, while Graham Potter might be set for a quick return to Premier League management according to the latest betting apps.

However, the football betting sites currently have Michael Carrick as their outright favourite, with the Middlesbrough manager having started his playing career at the London outfit. We've also seen Brendan Rodgers trading at a short price and the Northern Irishman certainly has the right credentials for this role.

Would Benitez Still Be Interested In Hammers Job?

Rafael Benitez is regarded as one of the best football coaches in the world, and he has previously come close to managing West Ham. The 62-year-old discussed the vacant role in 2015 before deciding to take charge at Real Madrid, although this could be better timing for the highly-experienced Spaniard.

West Ham have had a mixed 2022/23 season, with the club in apparent threat of relegation during the early part of the season although they were able to rally in the final few months of the campaign. A success in the UECL final would earn them a place in next season's Europa League and perhaps the London outfit will be able to land this top-class manager.

Benitez was most recently in charge at Everton, and that was an ill-fated spell which saw him eventually relieved of his duties. However, the former Liverpool manager could be open to the prospect of managing a team who will need strengthening, especially with Declan Rice set to leave the club.

Carrick Prominent in West Ham Betting Market

It's clear that the new betting sites respect Michael Carrick in their Next West Ham Manager betting market and the former Hammers midfielder has done an impressive job at Middlesbrough this season. Despite it being his first proper managerial position, the 41-year-old got Boro into promotion contention before losing to Coventry in the Championship play-offs.

It could be that West Ham are keeping a watching brief when it comes to Carrick. Now that he has been unable to achieve promotion with Middlesbrough, then it might be that he's open to the prospect of taking charge at the London Stadium and the chance to cut his teeth in the top flight with this ambitious club.

Carrick has plenty of experience of working as part of various backroom teams at Manchester United, including Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Louis van Gaal. He is clearly respected within the game and it wouldn't be a big surprise if West Ham made an approach for him.

Rodgers Could Be a Major Coup for Hammers

The managerial merry-go-round is in full swing and Brendan Rodgers is now an attractive free agent after parting company with Leicester City in early April. The Northern Irishman left the King Power Stadium with the Foxes sitting in the relegation zone, although his four years at the Midlands club was an overwhelming success.

Rodgers won the FA Cup with Leicester and twice steered the team into Europe, narrowly missing out on the Champions League places each time. He's held a number of high-profile roles including the Liverpool and Celtic job, with West Ham potentially approaching someone who has an enviable track record.

It might be that Rodgers takes some time out after a succession of managerial jobs although he's still relatively young and might think that a project at West Ham makes lots of appeal. He's always looked to create teams play exciting and attacking football, with his Swansea, Liverpool, Celtic and Leicester City teams always providing entertainment for the fans and usually the right results.

Could Potter Return to Premier League with Hammers?

Graham Potter is trading at a short price on several manager markets with the football betting sites and that includes the West Ham position. The Englishman had a rollercoaster ride of a 2022/23 season which saw his Brighton & Hove Albion side start the campaign strongly before he was effectively poached by Chelsea.

Despote a promising start where Potter guided the Blues into the knockout stage of the Champions League, the former Swansea City manager started to struggle at Stamford Bridge. However, we can't forget how well he was performing with the Seagulls and perhaps West Ham would benefit from having a coach like him at the London Stadium.

Potter would want assurances that he could bring in the right sort of player and reinvest the likely proceeds from the sale of Declan Rice. Indeed, the team would need to be rebuilt next term although this is a coach who is probably less pragmatic than Moyes.

Could Nuno Return to English Top Flight?

Nuno Espirito Santo enjoyed an excellent spell with Wolverhampton Wanderers where the Portuguese took the Midlands club to the Premier League at the first time of asking and then had the team punching well above their weight in the top flight.

Indeed, Nuno steered Wolves into Europe and the first two seasons in the top flight saw the Midlands club achieve top-half finishes. It seems as though he gets linked with plenty of Premier League positions, and there could be unfinished business in England for him.

After leaving Wolves, Nuno was then hired by Tottenham Hotspur, although the 48-year-old's time at the North London club was short-lived, with the manager lasting just 17 games in charge of Spurs. Since 4 July 2022, the former Porto boss has been in charge at Al-Ittihad, and he's reported to be enjoying a lucrative contract which might see him want to stay put in Saudi Arabia.

Carlos Corberan Catching the Eye at West Brom

Carlos Corberan famously steered Huddersfield Town to the Championship play-offs last season, and the Spaniard is now back in England weaving his magic in the second tier. West Brom have seemingly made a brilliant hire considering the 39-year-old made a flying start at The Hawthorns, engineering 10 wins and a draw from his first 13 games although results have dropped off since then.

The Midlands club will be keen to retain the services of someone who has had such a transformative effect on the Baggies, although West Ham might hold plenty of appeal to someone who will harbour ambitions to manage in the Premier League. Corberan signed an extended deal to 2027 when he was strongly linked with the Leeds United by some betting sites, so plenty of compensation would need to be paid.
