Juventus president Agnelli to buy Arsenal star Walcott for Conte

Juventus president Andrea Agnelli has decided on Antonio Conte as their next coach.

Conte will arrive from Siena to replace Gigi del Neri, says Tuttosport.

Juve moved for Conte after failing to reach a compo agreement with Napoli for Walter Mazzarri. They also expressed interest in Porto's Andres Villas-Boas, but found his contract escape clauses too complicated to deal with.

Agnelli is ready to bankroll a €120 million buying spree this summer for Conte - with Arsenal winger Theo Walcott and Manchester City striker Carlos Tevez high on the shopping list.

Juve's directors have drawn up a dream XI for next season and will present it to Conte once his appointment is finalised:


4-2-4: Buffon; Zapata (or Beck), Bonucci, Barzagli, Chiellini; Montolivo (or Melo), Diarra (or Marchisio), Krasic (or Walcott), Ribery; Matri, Tevez (or Benzema).
