Tottenham Hotspur are on red alert as rumours from Italy suggest that Andrea Pirlo could leave Juventus in the wake of Antonio Conte's exit.

Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly on red alert as rumours from Italy suggest that Andrea Pirlo could be available on a free transfer this summer, according to reports.

Antonio Conte resigned as Juventus manager this week after guiding the Serie A side to three consecutive titles, having fallen out with the club over transfer strategy.

Italy international Pirlo could be the next senior figure to leave the club, with talkSPORT suggesting that Tottenham could reignite their interest in the 35-year-old playmaker.

Former AC Milan manager Massimiliano Allegri, the man who Pirlo claims forced him out of Milan in 2011, is rumoured to be close to taking over at Juventus.

Spurs are also said to be ready to offer Jan Vertonghen a new contract in order to put potential suitors off moving for the Belgium defender.
