Aloisi, currently a coach with A League club Adelaide United, also turned out for Australia in Scotland during the Under-16 World Cup in 1989.

He shares the same agency as Postecoglou and told Australian TV programme The Real Football Show this weekend that he’s keen on working under him at Lennoxtown next season.

“All I can really tell you is that I spoke to my agent, Frank Trimboli, two days ago, but that’s about it,” he admitted.

“I know Ange reasonably well and have kept in contact with him over the years as well.

Meanwhile, Ryan Christie has emerged as a transfer target for Leicester City, according to reports.
