Peru FA vice-president Alfredo Brito has revealed that he wants Marcelo Bielsa to become the manager of their national team.
The former Argentina and Chile boss is currently without a job after leaving La Liga side Atletico Bilbao last June.
After failing to lead Peru to the World Cup, Uruguayan coach Sergio Markarian left his post in October and Brito is aiming to persuade Bielsa to take over.
"We'll exhaust all possibilities to hire him, we need to recognise that Bielsa did an excellent job at Athletic Bilbao and Chile's national team," Brito told Radio Ovacion.
Fellow Argentines Diego Maradona, Ricardo Gareca and Americo Gallego have also been linked with Peru's vacant managerial post.
