The former Juventus coach replaced Cesare Prandelli at the helm of the national team last summer.

Italy are unbeaten under Conte, who is tied to the Azzurri for another year.

"Conte has asked me to extend his contract for a further two years," Tavecchio told the Italian press. "I'm delighted with his request because as everyone knows, I worked hard to get Conte.

"But I can only make commitments during my term as president, not after. It's something that we will consider further on."

Italian police have arrested a Moroccan suspect over an attack at a Tunisian museum which left more than 20 dead.

Two gunmen killed 20 tourists at the Bardo Museum nearly in March, in one of the worst attacks in the North African country that mostly avoided violence since its 2011 uprising against autocrat Zine El-Abidine Ben Ali.

Tourists from Germany, Poland, Italy and Spain were among those killed.
