Chris Sutton is the new bookies' favourite to be installed as manager at Inverness Caledonian Thistle.
Tapia's UK-based lawyer, Jose Martinez, suggested that Manuel Pellegrini's former sporting director was veryb interested in the job.
"Mr Tapia is very keen to establish himself as a coach in the UK and sees the Inverness job as a wonderful opportunity," he said.
"It is a longstanding ambition. He has 30 years' experience and is very highly thought of in his home country.
"Quite recently, he was rated as one of the top five coaches in Spain. He is a good friend of Josep Guardiola and he is one who could offer a recommendation for Antonio's candidacy."
