Paul Gascoigne is being tipped for the Italain version I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here.
Gazza could be saying arrivederci to Britain to grace screens in Italy – where he remains a huge name after three years playing for Lazio in Rome.
The midfielder also starred at the Italia 90 World Cup, crying on the pitch as England reached the semi finals.
Reports said Gascoigne is set to join the line of Isola dei Famosi -Island of the Famous.
The show starting a week on Monday features an actress, a model and a boxer who are all unknowns here.
The cast will fly to South America to compete tasks in Honduras.
The British government allows foreign travel for work.
Gazza, who starred for Spurs and hometown club Newcastle, has long battled drink problems.
But last year said pellets in his stomach were helping him stay sober.
Gazza’s agent was approached for comment.
It comes weeks after Gazza recalled amusing tales of being “tipsy” and smoking a big cigar with Diego Maradona before playing against the Argentine legend.
Maradona passed away aged 60 on Wednesday after suffering heart failure in his sleep, just weeks after undergoing a brain operation in Buenos Aires.
Gazza was invited onto Good Morning Britain to discuss his memories of Maradona, and pulled out some classic anecdotes.
Despite being two of the leading players of their era, the pair never faced off against each other in competitive action, but did meet in friendlies.
“I missed the chance to play against him for Napoli. I joined Lazio he just left,” Gazza recalled. “I played against him in a charity game. I see a little fella outside with a polka hat on and a cigar about that big.
“I just went up behind him and said can I borrow your lighter please, Diego.
“He just started laughing so I had a bit of a cigar with him. We played in that match [Soccer Aid] – [GMB presenter] Ben [Shepherd] played as well.”
