AVB linked with Serie A hotseat after Tottenham axe

The Portuguese coach is being lined up as Massimiliano Allegri’s replacement at AC Milan, according to reports in England.

The dust is yet to settle on Andre Villas-Boas’ dismissal as manager of Tottenham Hotspur, but the young coach is seemingly already in demand.

Despite all the speculation over who will replace him at White Hart Lane, the Portuguese trainer has been linked with a number of new jobs himself.

The latest side to reportedly be interested in the ex-Porto man is AC Milan, with reports emerging today that the Serie A giants have earmarked Villas-Boas as a possible new head coach.

The Rossoneri are struggling this season, and despite qualifying for the knockout rounds of the Champions League are sitting in 12th place in Serie A.

Manager Massimiliano Allegri’s contract is expiring in the summer, and as such it is believed that the coach will be allowed to leave the San Siro.

The Times report that Milan representatives have already touched base with Villas-Boas to gauge his interest in a move to Italy at the end of the season.

It is believed that the former Tottenham man wants to consider his options and take time away from the game before his next post.
