Robbie Savage is wanted for 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!'.
The 41-year-old former footballer has reportedly been approached by bosses of the jungle-based show to find out what it would take to get him to agree to take part in the forthcoming series in Australia.
A source told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "Robbie would be an amazing signing. We're quietly confident he'll do it after years of trying to persuade him."
The hunky sportsmen has already competed on 'Strictly Come Dancing' in 2013 and he previously admitted that he would love the "challenge" of the Bush Tucker Trials.
He said: "I thought I'd never do a reality show but I've realised I'm someone who needs a challenge. I'd consider it."
The sports pundit could be set to join the likes of Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini and former UKIP leader Nigel Farage, who are rumoured to be heading into the jungle, in the Australian outback.
Meanwhile, Louis Smith has hinted that he could heading Down Under for the new series of the creepy-crawly show after he scooped the silver medal on Pommel Horse at the Rio Olympics last week.
The 27-year-old hunk recently revealed: "There's something in the pipeline. I have got a meeting when I get back about a potential show. You guys will probably have a field day with it. But I am looking forward to it, it's something I have wanted to do for a long time. I can neither confirm or deny anything you say. Like I say, wait and see."
