Corriere dello Sport have revealed that as many as four different Serie A clubs are already lining up a potential move for Antonio Conte if Tottenham sack the Italian.
Reports over the last couple of days have indicated that Conte is a dead man walking at Spurs, with the North London club expected to part ways with the 53-year-old by the end of this week (Telegraph).
This has now been backed by Corriere, who say that Conte is ‘almost free’ and that the parties are now trying to finalise ‘the severance pay’ before parting ways.
The publication adds that several Serie A clubs are now thinking about a move for the Spurs head coach, who is thought to be keen on returning to his homeland.
A return to Juventus is said to be on the cards, with the report stating that Conte would welcome the chance to manager at the Allianz Stadium again.
In addition, AC Milan and Inter Milan are also said to be eyeing the Tottenham boss, with both clubs said to be in a ‘delicate phase of unstable equilibrium’ with their current managers.
Finally, Corriere add that Conte could replace former Spurs head coach, Jose Mourinho, at AS Roma, with the Portuguese coach thought to be seeking clarity from the Giallorossi owners regarding how much money there is to spend in the summer before committing his future.

None of the big clubs in the Serie A are in good financial health.
So, Conte will not be able to make the sort of transfer demands at these clubs that he has been used to making in his managerial career so far.
The 53-year-old’s demanding nature might even put off some of these clubs from pursuing him.
