Paris Saint-Germain are hopeful that ex-Juventus boss Massimiliano Allegri will replace current boss Thomas Tuchel this summer.
GoalBall understand that PSG are determined to make a change at the end of the season.
And according to Foot Mercato, the Ligue 1 champions have opened talks with the 52-year-old.
Sporting director Leonardo is a known long-term admirer of Allegri and is open to the idea of the Italian succeeding Tuchel in the Parc des Princes hot seat.
But the Italian tactician hasn't taken a new role since departing the Allianz Stadium at the end of the last campaign, despite Real Madrid and Manchester United both being touted to have targeted him.
Allegri remains under contract at Juventus even after his sacking, but the Italian would free himself to take up the reins in the French capital.
And with Tuchel under mounting pressure, Allegri was forced to deny similar reports that he had entered negotiations with PSG earlier this year.
With his willingness to return to management made clear, Allegri's agent revealed that the former AC Milan coach was eager to work outside of his homeland.
