Sean Dyche has sent Ian Woan to check on Nottingham Forest and Leicester City as he eyes a new job, according to The Sun.
The Reds recently handed Steve Cooper a new contract at the City Ground, despite a poor run of form.
Both Forest and Leicester could soon be looking for new managers.
Evangelos Marinakis hasn’t come to the Premier League to mess around and he won’t be happy.
Forest have lost six of their last seven matches and the owner will want to see an improvement before the World Cup.
Dyche has been out of work since leaving Burnley in April and he’s keen to get back into work.
He was heavily linked with a move to the City Ground recently when Cooper was seemingly under pressure.
Instead, Forest delivered a show of faith to Cooper, handing him a new contract.
The Reds show no signs of winning games on a regular basis, however, and relegation looks nailed on.
Forest are bottom of the Premier League and the dream has become a nightmare very quickly.
One thing that Dyche does know is how to stay in the top flight and Forest might grow tempted to make a change.
The 51-year-old has sent Woan to watch Leicester and Forest, with Dyche keen to get back into the game.
He spent 10 years at Burnley and left in surprising circumstances.
The Clarets sacked him and were unable to avoid relegation back to the Championship.
Now, Dyche has his eye on another job and it remains to be seen whether or not Forest will be an option.

It does seem highly unlikely that the Reds will go for Dyche.
They’ve delivered a show of faith to Cooper and right now it seems he will get a chance to revive the club’s fortunes.
The Reds haven’t looked like winning a game for some time.
That is a worry and the club’s hierarchy won’t want to get relegated after spending a fortune in the summer.
Dyche would be a safe pair of hands for any Premier League club looking to avoid relegation.
He has experience of fire fighting and it’d be intriguing to see if he’s learned anything from his time at Burnley.
Forest fans are unlikely to get a chance to see Dyche at Forest any time soon.
Cooper looks like getting a real chance on Trentside and the ex-Burnley man might have to wait patiently.
