According to UK reports Kewell, who has taken strugglers Crawley Town to 12th on the League Two ladder, would replace current Addicks boss Karl Robinson if the deal went ahead.

After a tough start to life at the Reds, Kewell has led the minnows to within seven points of the promotion playoffs.

In a recent interview with British radio program talkSPORT the Socceroo legend and former Liverpool player said the secret to success was keeping it simple.

β€œThe biggest things I try to work on are the things I did as a player – being simple, basic. I knew what my strengths were and I worked on them at training and come the weekend I was prepared for the game," Kewell said.

β€œI try not to give too much information about the opposition because I believe football is your game.

"We’re at a stage where we had to adapt to a lot of teams but we’re starting to see that teams are adapting to us which is a huge compliment."
