Spurs are in advanced talks with former Roma boss Paulo Fonseca, as they step up their search for a new manager.
They have been linked with a host of names since Jose Mourinho was sacked in April, and, at one stage last week, many thought they were set to announced Antonio Conte as their new man. However, talks broke down over his transfer demands, whilst Spurs were unable to give Conte the assurances that he was seeking about the future of Harry Kane.
There was also talk about bring back former manager Mauricio Pochettino to the club, the man that chairman Danie Levy sacked in November 2019, but he has chosen to stay with his current club PSG.
Instead they have turned their attention to Fonseca, the man, ironically, that Mourinho has succeeded at Roma.
The 48-year old Portuguese previously managed Shakhtar Donetsk for three seasons, before joining Roma in 2019.
