Plumtree is currently the assistant coach of Super Rugby log-leaders, the Hurricanes, but according to Netwerk24, the New Zealander has been in connection with Western Province Director of Rugby, Gert Smal, about a possible move to Cape Town.
Allister Coetzee, the current Stormers coach, will leave the team after this year's competition to take charge of the Kobe Kobelco Steelers in Japan.
Plumtree, 49, coached the Sharks between 2008 and 2013 before being shown the door when John Smit took over as CEO of the coastal franchise.
Other names mentioned to possibly succeed Coetzee as Stormers coach include former All Black and Golden Lions coach John Mitchell, Springbok forwards coach Johan van Graan, Junior Springbok coach Dawie Theron and former Wallaby mentor Ewen McKenzie.
