Incoming England boss Sam Allardyce is reportedly keen to recruit Paul Clement and Fernando Hierro to his coaching staff.
Allardyce is set to be confirmed by the FA as Roy Hodgson’s replacement, with compensation being discussed with Sunderland, who are keen to appoint David Moyes as their new manager.
Former Bolton, Newcastle and West Ham boss Allardyce is already focusing on selecting members of his coaching staff, with Clement and Hierro likely to be approached.
Clement has just started a new role at Bayern Munich under Carlo Ancelotti after the English coach was sacked as manager of Derby last season.
As a coach, Clement has established a stellar reputation, having assisted Ancelotti at Chelsea, Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain. The 44-year-old could be offered a part-time role, similar to that occupied by Gary Neville under Hodgson, so that Clement can continue with his work in Munich,
Allardyce is also keen to speak to Hierro, with the pair having worked together when the former Spain captain played one season at Bolton in 2004-05.
Hierro is currently coach of Real Oviedo following two years as assistant manager at Real Madrid.
