Patrick Vieira, David Wagner and John Terry are all on Bournemouth’s shortlist for the vacant manager’s job.
Interest in the role has been high since Jason Tindall was sacked by the Championship club last week.
Sportsmail reported that Bournemouth have narrowed down their shortlist to four candidates who are being interviewed over Zoom on Wednesday and Thursday.
Vieira, Wagner and Terry have emerged as the three favourites for the role after former Chelsea boss Frank Lampard decided against going for the job.
Jonathan Woodgate has been in temporary charge of the Cherries since Tindall and he is also being considered for the role.
Woodgate has impressed with the assistance of Harry Redknapp, with Tuesday night’s FA Cup fifth round victory over Burnley a highlight so far.
Former Arsenal midfielder Vieira has been out of work since he was sacked as manager of Nice in December.
The 44-year-old was dismissed after Nice were knocked out of the Europa League and a string of poor results which left them 11th in Ligue 1.
Wagner is understood to be keen on managing a side in the Championship which has the potential to return to the Premier League.
Wagner, who led Huddersfield to the top flight through the play-offs in 2017, has been out of work since September.
The 49-year-old was in charge of Schalke for just over a year before he was sacked after a run of 18 matches without a win.
Terry has worked as an assistant coach at Aston Villa under manager Dean Smith since 2018.
Smith has previously said that he wouldn’t stand in Terry’s way should the former Chelsea defender want to try and establish himself a manager.
