Italian giants Juventus are reportedly targeting Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp as a potential replacement for current boss Max Allegri, according to reports.

The Italian, who has won four Serie A titles, four Italian cups and two Italian Super Cups in his time in charge of the Old Lady, has remained coy on his future in recent weeks. That has led to speculation that he could be departing come the end of the campaign.

In that circumstance, Juventus would either target Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp or former player Zinedine Zidane as his successor, according to Tuttosport. The report also explains that it could potentially be tough to prise Klopp away from Anfield, meaning Zidane would be the favourite to take the reins should Allegri depart.

The Frenchman, who has been out of work since leaving Real Madrid at the end of last season, enjoyed a successful spell with the Italians as a player. In five years, he lifted two Serie A crowns.

Meanwhile, Juventus are enjoying a successful season under Allegri and sit 11 points clear at the top of Serie A. They can also be backed at 7/1 with Betfred to win the UEFA Champions League at the end of the campaign.
