Conte added to Juve list

Antonio Conte has joined Luciano Spalletti as a possible replacement for Gigi Del Neri at Juventus in the summer.

Del Neri's future in Turin is far from secure after another loss in Serie A this weekend, this time at Lecce, saw them fall seven points behind fourth-placed Lazio.

Turin-based Tuttosport claimed that Del Neri now has just months to save his post and touted Spalletti as a possible summer target.

But the former Roma boss is not the only man being linked with the Old Lady of Italian football on Monday.

Siena tactician Antonio Conte is again seeing his name paired with the Bianconeri less than two years after being interviewed for the job.

Conte, fresh from guiding Bari to Serie A, was a contender to replace Claudio Ranieri in 2009 before the outfit opted to hire Ciro Ferrara.

Conte, a former Juventus midfielder for over a decade, started coaching in 2006 when he took control of Arezzo.

His only spell in charge of a Serie A club was a brief stint at Atalanta which lasted for just 13 games.
