The International Football Association Board has reportedly decided to lift a ban on international players displaying poppies.
The decision prompted strong criticism from British associations, fans, and even the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, who deemed FIFA's stance "utterly outrageous".
According to Sky Sports News, FIFA has sent out a draft proposal to its member nations with revised provisions that could see the poppy permitted if opposing teams and the competition organiser for the relevant match both accept its use in advance.
The report goes on to claim that the IFAB, football's lawmakers, are expected to rubber-stamp the change next month.
England intend to play Germany at Wembley in November, subject to qualifying results next month, and the German FA is believed to have raised no objections to the use of the poppy.
The Football Association has declined to comment until a change has been fully approved by the IFAB.
England previously wore poppies with FIFA's go-ahead during a friendly with Spain in 2011.
