Chelsea legends Frank Lampard and John Terry are among top candidates considered for Bournemouth's vacant manager role.
The Cherries have remained coachless since they parted with their former handler Jason Tindall about six months ago.
Jonathan Woodgate has been in charge of the club on an interim basis since then and his presence has helped turned their fortunes around.
The Vitality Stadium outfit is now weighing an option to hire a substantial manager and Woodgate is a serious contender after an impressive win over Birmingham last weekend.

They currently sit sixth on the English Championship table with 45 points from 28 appearances - 10 points behind table-toppers Norwich City as they battle to return to the Premier League next term.

The 73-year-old during an interview told Sky Sports and was reported by SunSport saying:
"Jonathan Woodgate played under me at Spurs and he's a great lad. He's asked me to come in for a few days and watch them train. Just to be around the place for a few days, help keep my eye on things for him."
Bookmakers Ladbrokes have since installed Woodgate as one of the top three favourites to take over full-time.
Aston Villa assistant manager John Terry is also in the race to become Bournemouth's new boss on a permanent basis. He has held the position since he announced his retirement in 2018.
Former Huddersfield Town boss David Wagner, ex-Derby and Chelsea boss Frank Lampard and Nigel Pearson are also being considered for the top job.
Redknapp, 73, is a double-figure 10/1 to take over himself. A sensational return for Eddie Howe is offered at 12/1 with Tony Pulis at the same price with bookmakers Ladbrokes.
Legit.ng earlier reported that Frank Lampard recently parted ways with Chelsea after failing to get the best out of his players but he may not be out of a job for long.
The 42-year-old manager has now been linked with a number of positions as predicted by the bookies.
Lampard only lasted 18 months at the helm of affairs at Stamford Bridge after the Blues slipped to ninth on the table and their qualification for continental football under immense threat.
