Villarreal look set to name Nestor Gorosito as their new coach after the Argentine arrived in Spain for talks, according to Marca.

Miguel Angel Lotina is currently in charge of Villarreal, yet he is expected to be replaced in the near future, with Gorosito apparently the favourite to succeed him.

Gorosito's last coaching role was with Argentinos Juniors, but the 48-year-old resigned in February 2012 after suffering a car accident that resulted in intestinal damage and a fractured vertebra.
