Blitzboks coach Neil Powell has been linked to a coaching role with the Sharks.
Afrikaans newspaper Rapport indicated on Sunday that Powell could become the Durban franchise's new attack coach, with talks believed to be at an "advanced stage".
The report added that Powell would join the Sharks after next year's Sevens Rugby World Cup which will be hosted at Cape Town Stadium.
Powell became Springbok Sevens head coach in 2013 after a successful career as a player with the team.
Under his guidance, the Blitzboks won the World Rugby Sevens Series in the 2016/17 and 2017/18 seasons.
The Sharks' current attack coach, David Williams, will leave for Bath in England later this year.
Sharks CEO Eduard Coetzee would not comment on the negotiations with Powell.
Powell, 42, played as a scrumhalf in the 15-man code before he shifted his focus to sevens. He represented the Cheetahs, Griquas and Bulls.
