Cameroon manager Paul Le Guen is being linked with the soon-to-be vacant Australia national team job.
The Frenchman, whose Indomitable Lions have already been eliminated from the 2010 World Cup, is being earmarked to take over from Pim Verbeek when his tenure finishes at the culmination of Australia's time in the tournament.
Reports suggest that the former Stade Rennais, Lyon, Rangers and Paris Saint-Germain boss is high on Football Federation Australia's list but president Frank Lowy would not comment on that speculation.
"We have many irons in the fire but we will take our time to choose. It's very important we find the right person at the right price," Lowy said.
