Since losing his race seat at Toro Rosso at the end of 2011, the Spaniard stayed in the paddock as a co-commentator for British radio, and he still remains tyre supplier Pirelli's main tester.

But the Spanish sports newspaper Marca reports that Alguersuari, still just 23, is now eyeing a switch to America's premier open-wheel scene.

The report said chassis supplier Dallara is keen to see Alguersuari in IndyCar, and is involved in talks to arrange a test in a DW12 car "in a few months".

Marca linked Alguersuari with a move to the Panther team for 2013, who have recently fielded fellow Spaniard Oriol Servia.
