Massimiliano Allegri would consider an approach to become Tottenham Hotspur’s new manager, the Evening Standard have reported.

Tottenham are on the lookout for a new manager after deciding to sack Jose Mourinho and his backroom staff last month.

Mourinho had guided the North Londoners to the top of the Premier League table in late November only for a catastrophic run of form to see them drop to seventh place and had also suffered a surprising exit in the Europa League at the hands of underdogs Dinamo Zagreb to further hamper their hopes of a return to the Champions League.

The 53-year-old has been out of work since he left Juventus in 2019 having won the Serie A title on five occasions, the Italian Super Cup three times and lifting the Italian Cup on four occasions (transfermarkt).

Allegri revealed in December that he expects to work in the Premier League in the future having improved his English (Evening Standard).

Allegri is a serial winner following his time at Juventus and AC Milan, however, our last manager also had a pretty good CV when it came to silverware.

The fact that he is without a club and Daniel Levy would not have to pay millions to lure him away from a current employer could prove to be an attractive proposition for the Spurs chairman.
