Hertha BSC are hoping it will be possible to convince Niko Kovac to take on the job as head coach ahead of the 2020/21 season, according to Kicker.

The German capital club looked into the possibility of appointing Kovac this month, but ended up putting Jürgen Klinsmann in charge until the end of the season.

Kovac didn't want to take on a new task just weeks after he was dismissed as Bayern coach. But he could potentially succeed Klinsmann in the summer of 2020, with talks between the 48-year-old and Hertha currently taking place in the background, as per Kicker.

Niko Kovac, who was born and grew up in Berlin, has previously worked as coach for Croatia, Eintracht Frankfurt and Bayern München.
