Allegri has been out of work since his sacking by AC Milan in January. The 47-year-old won the title in his first season (2010/2011) in charge.

Milan finished runners-up the following campaign before the club's fortunes dipped.

Conte, who left Juve after guiding the club to a third consecutive title, is tipped to succeed Cesare Prandelli as national team manager.

Prandelli stood down after Italy's first round knockout at the World Cup.
