Paulo Sousa is being lined up for a return to Fiorentina.
After the sacking of Vincenzo Montella, Fiorentina chiefs are in the market for a new coach and Sousa is their priority.
A meeting is being scheduled with the agent of the FC Basle coach to kickoff negotiations.
Former Swansea City boss Sousa is under contract at Basle, but open to returning to Florence.
Along with Sousa, Parma coach Roberto Donadoni is also under consideration.
