Speaking before their stunning 3-2 semi-final second leg win over Ajax earlier this month, he said: “Winning the Champions League? Yes, it would be fantastic, no? Close a five-year chapter and go home.

“It’s not a joke. Why?

“To win the Champions League with Tottenham, in this circumstance, this season, maybe I need to think a little bit to do something different in the future, for sure.

The Express claim Allegri, who will leave Turin at the end of the season, would be a top candidate to replace Pochettino.

The 51-year-old, who has been linked with Premier League jobs in the past, won five Serie A titles in as many seasons with the club.

He also guided Juve to the Champions League final twice, but fell short to Barcelona and Real Madrid in 2015 and 2017, respectively.

Pochettino is understood to be the favourite to succeed Allegri at the Allianz Stadium.

Explaining the club’s decision to move on without Allegri, Juve chairman Andrea Agnelli said: “This has been a decision of a lot of focus and emotions.

“At the end of several reflections and analysis, we identified that this was the best decision to make.

“We are all useful but no one is dispensable, starting from me. It is the history of the club that it is bigger than any single individual.”
