Cash-strapped Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) are willing to pay a new foreign coach $50,000 a month, which is double what former coaches Stephen Keshi and Sunday Oliseh were paid.
The NFF have already been sounding out several candidates for the top coaching post.
Former Cote d’Ivoire and Zambia coach Herve Renard and Uganda coach Micho have already been approached in the last few weeks.
And former Cameroon coach Paul Le Guen is the latest to be contacted by the NFF, according to top sources.
Le Guen has been without a job since November when he was sacked by Oman.
NFF president Amaju Pinnick has declared Oliseh will be the last local man to lead the Super Eagles and has made it clear an expatriate should pilot the Eagles after the temporary deal handed Samson Siasia.
Siasia is expected to revert to his post as the country’s Olympic team after the AFCON qualifiers against Egypt.
The country’s coaches association have already dared Pinnick on his move to hire a foreign coach for the Eagles. Vanguard
