Sources said the Al-Hilal administration approached the signature of French coach Bruno Gencio to undertake training in the club and that they have already begun negotiations with him confirming the journey of Crescent Fahd bin Naval to Paris for this purpose.
Gencio has announced he will not renew his contract with Lyon after third place in Ligue 1, which allowed them to join the Champions League.
The sources said the Al Jazeera newspaper says Crescent is waiting for the negotiations to be signed with Gencio to head the team in the next season.
Al-Hilal has removed coach Zoran Mamic for losing his league results and losing his final Arab League. Al-Faisaly was temporarily appointed as a coach until the end of the season.
