Carlos Tevez is set to meet Antonio Conte at Tottenham’s training ground next week
Italian publication Corriere dello Sport, as per the Sun, have now reported that Tevez will meet Conte and his coaching staff at Hotspur Way training ground next week.
It was the Tottenham manager who signed Tevez from Manchester City for Juventus back in the summer of 2013.
They only spent one season together in which they won the Serie A title, before Conte left to become manager of the Italian national side.

Tevez has visited a number of sides in recent weeks including his former club Juventus
Tottenham won’t be the first side that Tevez has gone and visited in recent weeks.
He sparked rumours of a move to AC Milan after he was seen embracing manager Stefano Pioli and club legend Paulo Maldini at the club’s training ground.
Tevez has also visited his former side Juventus as well as the reigning Serie A champions Inter Milan.
The player has also been linked with a move to the MLS, though he has seemingly opened the door for a move to a European side as he reaches the end of his career.
DC United, offered Tevez a return to football with a move hinging on whether the two parties could reach an agreement over a financial package.
Fellow MLS teams Minnesota United and Orlando City were also interested in a move for the free agent.
Tevez played for West Ham, Manchester United and Man City during his time in England
Tottenham previously attempted to sign Tevez from Man City back in 2012.
Then manager Harry Redknapp said at the time: ‘I said to the chairman ‘can you get me Carlos Tevez?’
‘Daniel (Levy) made some enquiries, but it wasn’t doable. If he could have done it, he would have.
‘He (Levy) would have loved Tevez, but it wasn’t possible because his wages are £200,000 a week. It’s not possible at Tottenham to buy him.’
Tevez made over 200 Premier League appearances during his time in England, scoring 84 goals in the top flight.
He made 113 appearances during his second stint at Boca Juniors, before the two parties mutually agreed to terminate his deal.
