Cagliari are considering several different alternatives if they sack Gianfranco Zola, including David Suazo.
According to Sky Sport Italia, club President Tommaso Giulini informed Zola that he is considering other options.
Some fans have called for the return of Zdenek Zeman, who was sacked on December 23 to make way for Zola.
That seems the most likely outcome, especially as he is still being paid his wages.
Other Coaches up for the job include Delio Rossi, Serse Cosmi and Claudio Ranieri.
La Gazzetta dello Sport now claims there could be an internal solution, promoting current Primavera youth team Coach Vittorio Pusceddu alongside ex-striker Suazo.
Cagliari have picked up one point from the last six rounds.
