Troubled Olympic swimmer Ryan Lochte could be joining Season 23 of “Dancing with the Stars”!

Sources tell “Extra” they can’t confirm or deny he’s been offered a spot, but did say that the gold medalist is in talks for the new season.

The “DWTS” casting news comes after Lochte fabricated a story about a robbery in Rio during the 2016 Olympic Games.

Ryan apologized for the incident last week on Instagram, writing, “I want to apologize for my behavior last weekend — for not being more careful and candid in how I described the events of that early morning and for my role in taking the focus away from the many athletes fulfilling their dreams of participating in the Olympics. I waited to share these thoughts until it was confirmed that the legal situation was addressed and it was clear that my teammates would be arriving home safely.”

Afterward, several sponsors dropped the athlete, including Speedo and Ralph Lauren.
