Domenico Tedesco is on the verge of taking over as RB Leipzig coach, according to Sky Germany and Bild.
Tedesco is in line to replace Jesse Marsch, who was relieved of his duties in the wake of last week's 1-2 defeat to Union Berlin.
According to Bild, Tedesco could be in the dugout for Saturday's Bundesliga clash with Gladbach, with final talks currently underway.
Speaking after yesterday's 2-1 win over Manchester City, Leipzig CEO Oliver Mintzlaff provided a brief update on the club's search for a new coach.
"It can happen very quickly. We are in good talks and have the feeling that the coach we will sign is a perfect fit for the team," he said.
Tedesco has been unemployed since he left Spartak Moscow at the of May. He has previously coached Erzgebirge Aue and Schalke 04 in Germany.
