Ajax manager Erik ten Hag has emerged as the new favourite to succeed Jose Mourinho at Spurs.
That is after top target Julian Nagelsmann agreed a deal to take over from the outgoing Hani Flick at Bayern Munich.
51-year-old ten Hag has been with Ajax four years, and a=steered them to a domestic treble two years ago. That was also the same season they got to the semi-finals of the Champions League, missing out on a place in the final in a dramatic match against Spurs in Amsterdam.
And he looks like he will guide them to another Eredivisie title this season as well. They hold a 12 point lead at the top of the table with eight matches to be played.
Chairman Daniel Levy is keen that the new appointment believes in playing attacking football, after the defensive, conservative style practiced by Mourinho and ten Hag appears to tick all the right boxes.
