Jurgen Klinsmann is intrigued by the possibility of managing England, Sky sources understand.
The former Germany player and coach is coming up to five years in charge of the USA national team and led them to the semi-final of the Copa America last week, where they lost to Argentina.
He guided Germany to the semi-finals of the 2006 World Cup in Germany and has been backed as the best candidate by Sky Sports' Jamie Carragher.
Klinsmann, who spent a season at Tottenham as a player in the mid-nineties, has a contract with the States which runs until after the 2018 World Cup, earning him a basic salary of £1.9m ($2.5m) a year.
Klinsmann, who guided the USA to glory in the 2013 CONCACAF Gold Cup, has an overall record of 51 victories from 91 matches in charge of the States, a win rate of 56 per cent.
The 51-year-old's record was better during his two-year spell as Germany manager, where he presided over 20 wins, eight draws and six losses from 34 matches. That equates to a win rate of 59 per cent - the same as Roy Hodgson's record as England manager.
