Massimo Ficcadenti will be presented as the new Cagliari boss on Tuesday afternoon following the sacking of Roberto Donadoni.
Former Italy tactician Donadoni has been axed after a falling out with President Massimo Cellino at the Sant'Elia.
Ficcadenti is available after he quit Cesena over the summer despite keeping the Seahorses in the top flight.
This will be the tactician's third stint in Serie A after a problematic spell on the bench of little Reggina in 2007-08.
