Former Paris Saint-Germain boss Laurent Blanc is reportedly in line to take over as manager of the USA national side.
The 51-year-old has been out of work since leaving Les Parisiens in June 2016, having guided them to three back-to-back Ligue 1 titles, three League Cups and two French Cups.
The States, meanwhile, are in need of a new manager after Bruce Arena's resignation last week, three days after they failed to secure qualification for next summer's World Cup in Russia.
According to France Football, Blanc is now top of the USA's list to succeed Arena and they have been courting him since September.
The Frenchman is a former World Cup winner, albeit as a player in 1998, and has international management experience with a two-year spell in charge of his country from 2010 to 2012.body check tags ::
