Walter Zenga is the latest candidate for the Lecce job, vacated by Coach Gigi De Canio.
This week De Canio tended his resignation despite saving the Salentini from relegation with a late flurry of results.
According to the Gazzetta dello Sport, the short-list has been whittled down to just four tacticians.
Zenga has already worked around the world as a Coach with New England Revs, National and Steaua Bucharest, Red Star Belgrade, Gaziantepspor, Catania, Palermo and since 2010 has been on the bench of Al-Nassr in Dubai.
The next is current Roma Coach Vincenzo Montella, while Serse Cosmi is available again after a 35-day spell at Palermo.
Another interesting candidate would be Giuseppe Giannini, a former Roma player who reached the 1990 World Cup semi-final with Italy.
