Former Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp is again being linked with the Nigeria job.
Current Super Eagles coach Gernot Rohr sees his contract expire at the end of the month and there is serious doubt over the German's future.
It has led the Nigerian hierarchy to review their options meaning Redknapp could be set for a return to management.
The African nation and the former Tottenham boss have previously held discussions about the role.
That was back in 2016 but negotiations broke down, however they are confident of completing a deal this time round.
