Giancarlo Camolese is expected to soon be named new coach of Livorno.

Livorno announced the dismissal of Nando Orsi yesterday and last night former Torino and Vicenza coach Camolese revealed he had held talks with president Aldo Spinelli.

"Regarding negotiations, we are already well advanced," said Camolese. "I am returning to Torino after meeting with Spinelli in Genoa.

"The outstanding issues have nothing to do with money, but my role with the team. I want guaranteed control.

"I cannot comment on anything else at the moment."
