Juventus boss Antonio Conte is reportedly on the radar of Tottenham – but a successful swoop seems unlikely.
According to Tuttosport, the tactician is rated highly by the Premiership club who may be in need of a new Coach for next season.
Current boss Harry Redknapp could soon be confirmed as the new England manager and Spurs are already considering their options.
Conte, 42, has been a revelation in Serie A this season after he joined his beloved Bianconeri from Siena.
The Old Lady are still unbeaten this term, they are second in Serie A and have reached the Coppa Italia Final.
The former Italian international has a strong bond with the Old Lady given his past in Turin as a player and captain.
Conte, who has also bossed Arezzo, Bari and Atalanta in his career, is contracted to Juventus until May 2013.
