Sacked Bournemouth manager, Scott Parker, is being linked with the Nice job.
The 41-year-old was axed by the Cherries last month after losing three out of the opening four Premier League matches.
Foot Mercato says the ex-Fulham gaffer’s horror start to the season at the Vitality Stadium hasn’t put them off.
They have stated that he is a candidate to replace Lucien Favre in the French Riviera, with the 64-year-old under increasing pressure since succeeding Christophe Galtier in the summer.
Nice sit in 13th spot in Ligue 1 after the opening eight matches having won just two games, while losing on four occasions.
