Dutchman’s move back to Stamford Bridge looking more likely.
Turkey are already planning for life after Guus Hiddink after lining up John Toshack as his replacement.
The move is the clearest sign yet that Hiddink will leave his role as the head coach of the national team and move back to Chelsea.
Toshack has been out of work since resigning as Wales manager in 2010 but has emerged as Turkey’s main target.
Hiddink has said he will not leave his position until Turkey cannot qualify for Euro 2012 but that is set to be settled when they play Belgium next week.
The Dutchman has been linked with a return to Stamford Bridge where he temporarily managed the club to win the FA Cup.
It is unclear whether he will offered the vacant manager’s role or will take up a director of football role.
Hiddink is still in constant talks with Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich and is said to be keen on a return to club football.
