TEHRAN - Former England and Manchester City coach Sven-Goran Eriksson has reportedly been lined up to coach Iranian football club Tractor Sazi.

The Tabriz based football team parted company with Welshman John Toshack after three months.

Under guidance of the former Real Madrid coach, Tractor Sazi snatched nine points from six games in Iran Professional League (IPL).

Tractor Sazi sacked Toshack after the star-studded outfit were knocked out of the Iran’s Hazfi Cup in penalty shootout against Sanat Naft.

Now, Tractor Sazi, who are trying to win IPL title for the first time ever, have been reportedly linked with Eriksson.

Most recently, the Swede spent six months in China's second division with Shenzhen.

Local media reports suggest that former Werder Bremen coach Alexander Nouri is also a candidate to replace Toshack.
