Fulham are planning to sack manager Felix Magath just six weeks after he was appointed, according to the Daily Star.
Magath is likely to be shown the door at the end of the season if the club suffer relegation, as is looking increasingly likely with every passing game.
The Cottagers are rooted to the bottom of the Premier League, five points clear of safety with just six games remaining.
Reports suggest the London club are ready to turn to Alan Curbishley for next season, with Under-21 coach Kit Symons promoted to work alongside him.
Former Bayern Munich boss Magath has managed just four points from six matches since taking charge, and looks as though he has failed to save the club from relegation.
The clubs American owner Shahid Khan had hoped Magath would be able to inspire a fight for survival, or at the very worst a push for promotion next season.
But such has been the level of unrest within the squad at his methods, the club are ready to axe their third boss in less than a year.
