Andrea Stramaccioni is on the verge of being named the new Udinese Coach, according to reports.
Gigi Del Neri had been expected to take over at Stadio Friuli this summer following Francesco Guidolin’s retirement.
But after initial talks were held last week, the club confirmed that they would be looking elsewhere for their new tactician.
As such, according to Gianluca Di Marzio, they seem to have settled on Stramaccioni, who is currently in a meeting with the Zebrette hierarchy.
The 38-year-old has been out of work since May 2013, when he was relieved of his duties at Inter.
