Former AC Milan manager Massimiliano Allegri is set to become Tottenham Hotspur’s boss next season.

According to Italian sports newspaper Corriere dello Sport, Allegri has agreed a deal to manage Spurs in July, with the board also promising him transfer funds.

The Italian was sacked by AC Milan in January after a poor season and has reportedly been living in London, learning English in anticipation of coaching a Premier League side.

And it is claimed that Daniel Levy has given the opportunity by offering the Serie A-winner Tim Sherwood’s job at White Hart Lane.

The source also reports that Allegri will bring current AC Milan assistant coach Mauro Tassotti – who has held this position since 2001 – along with him.

The 46-year-old is the newest name in the recent managers – notably Louis van Gall and Southampton’s Mauricio Pochettino – linked with the Lilywhite job after Tim Sherwood’s likely departure.

In 2011, Allegri led AC Milan to their first Serie A title since 2004 in his debut season, but couldn’t match his early successes and was replaced by Clarence Seedorf in January this year.
