Juventus coach Max Allegri is on Tottenham's radar.
Calciomercato.com says Mauricio Pochettino's position in north London looks safe.
But the Argentine has been touted as a successor to Luis Enrique at Barcelona.
His affiliation with Espanyol might be a major deal breaker, but that seems unlikely to stop Nou Camp bigwigs trying their luck.
Allegri has an impressive record at Juve and is expected to be in high demand - not just with Spurs and Arsenal - if he opts to leave Turin.
Last season he led Juve to Serie A and Coppa Italia glory.
