Former Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard has been in touch with MK Dons about their vacant managerial position.
The League One club recently parted company with Karl Robinson and have been looking for a new appointment since.
They currently sit precariously in 21st position in the League One table and need to improve their form to avoid another relegation.
It is not clear whether Gerrard would take up a player-manager or just manager’s role at the club, should he be offered the job.
MK Dons have stated that they have a number of options on their shortlist for the job, meaning that Gerrard isn’t guaranteed the position.
Roberto di Matteo and Paul Ince have formerly been high-profile appointments by the Buckinghamshire club.
Were Gerrard to be appointed to the role, it would end the chances of him taking up a coaching role at Anfield in the short-term.
MK Dons chairman Pete Winkelman has stated his desire to take his club to the Premier League previously.
“We’re a young football club and we want to play football like the big boys play.” he said last month.
“We might not play it at the same speed or accuracy but I want our supporters to recognise that football.” he added.
