Bayern Munich are the "most concrete option" for out-of-work manager Antonio Conte, according to a report.
The 49-year-old has been without a job since being sacked by Chelsea at the end of last season.
Conte won the Premier League and FA Cup during his two years at Stamford Bridge, and he also lifted three Scudettos in three seasons with Juventus.
Corriere dello Sport claims that the Italian is now keen to get back involved in management and Bayern are the favourites to land him.
However, Bayern chiefs are said to be looking for an alternative option for next season and Conte is considered the best manager on the market.
