Swansea boss Francesco Guidolin has emerged as a surprise candidate to take charge of Italy once Antonio Conte steps aside.
Conte will leave his position as Italy national team coach after the European Championships this summer and is expected to take over as the next Chelsea manager.
The Italian Football Federation have already begun the search for his successor, and reports claim that Swans boss Guidolin could be one option for them.
Guidolin was handed a deal at the Liberty Stadium until the end of the season, when his position would be reviewed, but reports are rife that Swans chairman Huw Jenkins will look to bring in somebody else.
Former boss Brendan Rodgers has been heavily linked with a return to the club after admitting he will return to management in time for next season.
Either way, it is unlikely Guidolin will be kept on and a stint in charge of the Italian national side could be on the cards.
