Ronald Koeman is the frontrunner to replace Quique Setien as Barcelona manager.
Setien is expected to be sacked in a meeting with technical director Eric Abidal within the next few days following the humiliating 8-2 defeat to Bayern Munich in the Champions League quarter-finals.
Barca would need to pay compensation to get Koeman out of his current role as Netherlands head coach.
Ex-Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino is also a strong candidate. He is the preferred choice of director Ramon Planes, with whom he worked at Espanyol.
Pochettino is said to be interested in the job despite distancing himself in the past because of his legacy with Espanyol.
