Las Palmas are set to make a decision on their new head coach this week, with both Jorge Almiron and Paco Jemez the leading candidates.
It has not been a good season for the Gran Canarian club after the departures of several top performers back in the summer and coach Quique Setien, who is now heading up Real Betis.
After sacking former Liverpool coach Pako Ayestaran at the end of November, following an unsuccessful two months in charge – the club are now set to announce a new manager.
Lanus boss Almiron has been strongly linked with reports coming out of Argentine, quoting the tactician saying he was set to move to Spain.
Whilst, former Rayo Vallecano boss Jemez has been linked and left his role with Mexican side Cruz Azul last month.
An official decision is expected towards the end of this week with the hurry now on to improve their season.
Currently sitting rock bottom of the La Liga table, Las Palmas have just 10 points from 15 games and need to quickly improve if they are to catch their closest safe rivals, Deportivo La Coruna.
Prior to the winter break, Las Palmas will face struggling Espanyol and make a visit to Madrid to face Getafe.
