The Italian Football Federation have asked Massimiliano Allegri and Alberto Zaccheroni whether they are interested in becoming the next Italy boss.
Cesare Prandelli is expected to leave once his contract expires after the 2014 World Cup and the FIGC are already considering their next move.
A variety of tacticians have been paired, but Sky Sport Italia claim the Federation have been in contact with Allegri and Zaccheroni.
Allegri, contracted at Milan until June 2014, admitted this morning that he would like to boss the Azzurri at some stage in the future.
Meanwhile, Zaccheroni – who has coached the likes of Milan, Inter and Juventus – is in charge of a Japan side who have already qualified for Brazil 2014.
