Sven-Goran Eriksson, who has been linked with the Fulham post, has “unfinished business” in the Premier League, according to his agent.
The Swede has emerged as the favourite to replace Roy Hodgson after Fulham’s attempt to lure Martin Jol from Ajax failed.
“It’s a very attractive club, not just for Sven [but there has been] no contact whatsoever,” said Athole Still.
“We’ve know for some weeks Sven’s one of the managers under consideration.”
Eriksson is available after his short-lived stay managing the Ivory Coast, and is thought to be keen to return to England, where he was previously involved with Notts County and Manchester City.
He was sacked as City boss in 2008 by then-owner Thaksin Shinawatra when the team were ninth in the Premier League.
“He was in my view outrageously sacked from his position,” Still said.
“He did a first-class job with Manchester City – it was a personal non-compatibility with Dr Shinawatra which caused him to be sacked. He should still be there.”
