Serie A - Gasperini set for Pescara talks
Gian Piero Gasperini says he will enter talks with Pescara as the Serie B champions consider a number of candidates to replace Zdenek Zeman.
Czech tactician Zeman left Pescara to take the vacant coaching position at Roma following Luis Enrique’s departure, and the promoted side are believed to be weighing up a number of options in the pre-season.
Gasperini, who is a free agent after his ill-fated spell as Internazionale boss, is keen on a quick return to the dugout and said he would speak to the Delfini.
"I will go and have a chat with the Pescara directors," Gasperini, 54, told Il Messaggero.
"I can’t really say anything else, apart from the fact that it would be a stimulating experience to boss a team like that.
"I’ll listen with interest to what they have to say, but I don’t know what will happen."
Despite his brief tenure at Inter earlier this season, Gasperini has an excellent reputation for his work at Genoa, who he led from Serie B to the Europa League in three years.
Pescara are also reported to be considering disgraced former Fiorentina boss Delio Rossi, ex-Cesena coach Marco Giampaolo and Italy U21 coach Ciro Ferrara, who managed Juventus during the 2009-10 season.
