Former Lazio, Roma and England boss Sven Goran Eriksson could be about to take over the Iraq national team, according to reports.
The Swede is currently a free agent, having left his most recent role at Chinese club Shenzen last month.
The 70-year-old has held advanced discussions with the Iraqi FA in Istanbul.
It is hoped that a deal can be struck by next week, which would see Eriksson installed as boss in time for a friendly with Palestine on August 4.
Eriksson famously won Lazio’s second and most recent Scudetto on the final day of the 1999-2000 season.
In a nomadic career, he has also coached Man City, Leicester and the Mexico and Ivory Coast national teams.
