Spurs lining up stunning move to replace Pochettino with Serie A tactician

Spurs are plotting a shock move to replace manager Maurico Pochettino with Juventus boss Massimiliano Allegri, according to reports from CalcioMercatoWeb.

The current White Hart Lane chief has been a big success since moving to north London from Southampton in 2014, helping to reinvent the Lilywhites after a difficult post-Harry Redknapp period.

This season Pochettino’s side have been in terrific form and are considered to be outsiders in the race for the Premier League title, but reports claim that the club are already considering his replacement, with Juventus’ Allegri a candidate.

It’s believed that Tottenham are worried about the prospect of a managerial merry-go-round at the end of the season, with big clubs such as Chelsea and Manchester United potential players in a crowded market.

With Pochettino known to be a progressive coach he may be offered a bigger challenge, and should this happen they’re keen to lure in Allegri.

The current Juve boss succeeded Antonio Conte in Turin in 2014 and has gone on to win the Serie A title and took his side to the Champions League Final earlier this year.
