Enzo Maresca will leave Sevilla this summer to link up with former Real Madrid boss Manuel Pellegrini, who has taken over the role as manager at Premier League side West Ham United.
The Chilean boss signed a three-year deal at the London based club on Tuesday and will replace once Real Sociedad manager David Moyes, who failed to meet expectations last season.
Pellegrini arrives having called time on his spell with Hebei China Fortune – and has already begun looking at bringing in a number of new faces.
Maresca, who has been alongside Vincenzo Montella at Sevilla this season has some experience of English football – having played for West Bromwich Albion during his playing career.
Whilst his experience of English football may be slight – the former Italian midfielder has spent time with Pellegrini before, having played under him at La Liga side Malaga.
Maresca, who enjoyed a successful playing career – won five major trophies with Sevilla, including two UEFA Cup honours.
He would then spend one season in Greece, before returning to Spain with Malaga and then ended with spells at Sampdoria, Palermo and Hellas Verona in the Serie A.
His former boss Montella was sacked by Sevilla at the season end, despite talks about remaining in charge of further season.
