And according to the report by UK Sun, Antonio Conte now tops the list of candidates that will replace Spalletti should the club show him the exit doors before the end of the season.

The report added that bookies have cut their odds after punters piled in on the former Chelsea boss to takeover following Inter's Coppa Italia defeat to Lazio.

Oddschecker spokesperson George Elek: “Having only represented two clubs as a player, Antonio Conte is becoming quite the journeyman as a manager.

"It always seemed likely that he would return to Serie A and there are parallels with this job and the one he took at Juventus; restoring a falling giant to former glories."

Earlier, Legit.ng had reported how former Chelsea manager Antonio Conte is reportedly interested in replacing Jose Mourinho as permanent gaffer at Premier League giants Manchester United.

After the appointment of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as interim manager following the sacking of Jose Mourinho, United chiefs are expected to hire a permanent man at the end of the season.
