Former Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino is the main contender to take over at Paris St-Germain after Thomas Tuchel was sacked.
It is understood PSG’s players have been told that the Argentine, 48, will be joining the club.
Talks between PSG and Pochettino started at least two weeks ago.
Earlier, BBC Sport’s Simon Stone reported that Tuchel, 47, was sacked hours after he took charge of Wednesday’s 4-0 win against Strasbourg.
The French club are yet to confirm the German’s dismissal.
Tuchel became the Ligue 1 side’s boss in June 2018, winning two league titles, the French Cup and French League Cup.
They also reached the Champions League final for the first time last season, losing 1-0 to Bayern Munich.
Former Borussia Dortmund coach Tuchel’s contract was set to expire at the end of this season.
