German Wagner took them into the Premier League for the first time in their history in 2017 — and then kept them up.

However, he left in 2019 with the club bottom of the top flight.

Since leaving, the 50-year-old has managed Germans Schalke and Young Boys in Switzerland. 

West Brom tried to tempt him back to England last year but a return to Yorkshire could appeal.

A source close to the club said: “Wagner is the top target. He is out of work, is a proven winner here and would be a huge favourite with fans.”

Schofield was sacked after 69 days in charge following the  2-1 defeat by Wigan on Tuesday.  

Ex-Burnley chief Dyche and Belgium No 2 Anthony Barry have also been linked.

Dyche was sacked by long-time club Burnley in a last-ditch bid to beat the drop.

It did not work and the Clarets were relegated to the Championship.

Dyche had been in charge at Turf Moor since 2012, leading them to two Premier League promotions.

The 51-year-old remains out of work.
