AC Milan are considering former Tottenham boss Andre Villas-Boas as a replacement for Massimiliano Allegri, according to press reports.

AC Milan could see Portuguese tactician Andre Villas-Boas as a possible successor to struggling Massimiliano Allegri at the end of the season.

According to the Times, the now unemployed coach is a Rossoneri target for June.

The paper claims that Villas-Boas wants to take some time to consider his future, which would suit Milan well.

Allegri's contract expires at the end of the season and it is unlikely that he will be offered an extension.

The former Cagliari coach has had a tough season with Milan floundering in mid-table and losing any Scudetto hope early in the campaign.

There have been regular rumours that Allegri is set to be sacked, but his saving grace has been the Diavolo's progress to the knock-out stages of the Champions League - a feat that no other Italian team could manage.

Ex-Milan players Pippo Inzaghi and Clarence Seedorf have been tipped to take over from Allegri, but Villas-Boas may be a more attractive option.

There are said to be other clubs interested in employing Villas-Boas and there were reports that West Brom have already made contact, but the prestige of Milan may prove irresistible.
