Reports in Romania are suggesting that Walter Novellino is in pole position to be named as the new boss of Cluj.
The outfit are looking for a tactician after deciding to accept the resignation of Ioan Andone earlier this month.
Novellino, with a playing past at Milan, hasn’t worked since he rescinded his contract at Livorno in December 2011.
Novellino has bossed the likes of Venezia, Napoli, Sampdoria and Torino in his career.
He will become the club’s fourth Italian Coach after Cristiano Bergodi, Maurizio Trombetta and Andrea Mandorlini.
