Allegri is expected to replace Tim Sherwood as Spurs manager at the end of the season.
Corriere dello Sport says the former AC Milan coach has already drawn up a list of players he wants to import from Serie A.
Matri has long been a favourite of Allegri, though he has struggled badly this season since his move from Juventus to Milan.
