The Owls are searching for a new manager after Steve Bruce quit to join Newcastle in mid-july, with Lee Bullen in temporary cost.
However, Sheffield Wednesday have lost three of their last four league games and are 11th in the Sky Bet Championship table entering this week break.
It is considered any deal for Cowley will incorporate his brother and helper, Nicky, which makes the switch into South Yorkshire.
Lincoln have told Sky Sports News the brothers will take control of Tuesday night’s Leasing.com Trophy match against Doncaster.

Throughout their period at Sincil Bank, the club were also the first non-league side to achieve the FA Cup quarter-finals for 103 years using Lincoln also winning the Checkatrade Trophy (now Leasing.com Trophy) at 2017-18.
