Sky Sports understands that Wolverhampton Wanderers are trying to get Alex Inglethorpe to become their first-team coach.
Inglethorpe is currently in charge of the youth team at Tottenham Hotspur and is held in held regard for the job he is doing with the White Hart Lane youngsters.
He has previously had a spell as Exeter City boss between 2004 and 2006, having stopped playing in 2001 after having stints with several clubs including Watford and Leyton Orient.
The 40-year-old is now thought to have been targeted by Wolves, who are going through a transitional stage after appointing Stale Solbakken as manager in May.
Assistant manager Terry Connor had his contract terminated earlier this month to bring to an end 13 years of service.
Wolves have enjoyed a fine start to the season and are currently sixth in the Championship table after beating Peterborough United 2-0 away from home on Saturday.
