Udinese are reportedly in contract talks with Davide Nicola, with Julio Velazquez to be sacked.
It was reported last week that the Spaniard was under pressure, and the Zebrette were beaten 2-1 by Udinese at the weekend.
That put Velazquez on the brink, and calciomercato.com reports that he will be sacked later today.
Udinese are already in talks with Nicola, with the only stumbling block relating to the length of the contract.
The former Crotone boss is being offered a deal until the end of the season, but he wants an option for a further year.
It’s not expected this will cause the deal to collapse, and Nicola should sign on as Zebrette Coach in the coming hours.
