Skysports.com understands Robbie Fowler has been linked with a shock move to become Walsall's next manager.
The former Liverpool legend is currently winding down his playing career in Australia for Perth Glory.
The 35-year-old has never been in management but was linked with a coaching role with Walsall's League One rivals MK Dons earlier this season.
And Fowler has been mooted with an audacious bow into management at the Banks's Stadium after the Saddlers parted company with Chris Hutchings earlier this week.
The veteran striker joins caretaker manager Dean Smith and former Ferencvaros boss Bobby Davison on the potential candidates to take over at the Midlands club.
