In addition to Roger Schmidt, RB Leipzig are reportedly considering Edin Terzic, Bo Svensson and Domenico Tedesco in their search for a new coach.

Bild reports RB Leipzig have drawn up a list of four coaches, who could replace the recently sacked Jesse Marsch at Red Bull Arena.

In addition to their preferred candidate – PSV coach Roger Schmidt – Leipzig are said to be considering Borussia Dortmund technical director Edin Terzic, Mainz coach Bo Svensson as well as former Schalke 04 and Spartak Moscow coach Domenico Tedesco.

Svensson, however, is not really in contention as Mainz don't want to let him leave in the middle of the season.

Whether Schmidt or Terzic could and would get out of their contracts early is currently unclear.

Achim Beierlorzer, who served as an assistant for Marsch, will be in charge until the new head coach is appointed.
