Nigeria’s group opponent in the 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifier, Algeria are reportedly eyeing up a move for former Middlesbrough Manager, Aitor Karanka.
A concrete offer is not yet on the table per Spanish paper Marca, but there has been a conversation in which the coach has been made aware of the possibility.
The Fédération algérienne de football accepted the resignation of Belgian, George Leekens after a disappointing campaign at the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations.
Leekens also left the Desert Foxes bottom of group b in the World Cup qualifiers.
Meanwhile, Karanka is said to have several options from teams in England, Spain, China and the United States but he is yet to make a decision on his future.
He agreed in mid-March to leave his position at Middlesbrough after three and a half years on the bench.
Since then the former Real Madrid player has had various clubs declaring interest in his services, with the Algerian’s the latest in a long line.
