Many reports now have the 69-year-old as favourite to take over the position from caretaker Craig Shakespeare following the sacking of shock title-winner Claudio Ranieri in February.
With some fans left uninspired by this option, these are the best of the jokes as Roy Hodgson is tipped to be the next Leicester manager:
Roy Hodgson in talks with Leicester, if he gets the job I'm leaving with Claudio. #LCFC

Jeff Stelling asking if Roy Hodgson would be the man for Leicester. Well, he isn’t the manager they need, but he is the manager they deserve

Leicester City replacing a managerial hero with Roy Hodgson. Thank God a huge club like Liverpool would never do anything that stupid.

Replacing Ranieri with Hodgson is like replacing Ant and Dec with Rolf Harris. Shambolic.

I really, really want Leicester to go down. If it could be Hodgson in charge when they do, even better.

I swear if I ever hear Roy Hodgson talk about 'Won Wobert Zieler' then my season ticket is going in the bin.

Leicester City having talks with Roy Hodgson? That's like winning the lottery then looking for a house in Burnley!
