Diego Maradoina is believed to be interested in taking the Iraq national team reins.
The Argentine great has been out of the coaching caper since he was sacked by Dubai outfit Al Wasl in July this year but could be the next Iraqi manager according to his management company World Eleven.
"Two days ago we received the offer and Diego is interested," Tofoni said.
"He wants to coach again, but we are still to reach an agreement that suits both parties. However, both he and the (Iraq Football) Federation are very excited. Between tomorrow and Sunday we will come to a conclusion.
"The IFA's idea is that Maradona's contract, in principle, will last six months. If he does well they could extend his contract until after the World Cup."
