Tottenham Hotspur set to appoint their new manager within next the next seven to ten days pending contractual agreement
A report by football.london mentions that Tottenham Hotspur have identified their ‘top candidate’ for the role of the club’s new manager and would want to appoint them within 7-10 days.
But that would depend on reaching a contractual agreement with that manager’s current club. Now that the season has ended for The Lilywhites, Daniel Levy can focus on finding the man to replace Jose Mourinho at the club.
The Portuguese was sacked less than a week before the Carabao Cup final last month. Taking over the helm was 29-year-old Ryan Mason, who is currently serving as an interim manager.
The former Spurs and Hull City midfielder’s short stint has been marred with a number of losses. It is evident that the club wants to appoint a more experienced manager this summer.
The report further states that the club’s top 2 candidates for the job are both employed by clubs. It would take paying a compensation fee to get them to N17 next season and prise them away from their current employers.
A number of names have been linked with the Spurs job ever since Mourinho was given the sack. Erik Ten Hag, Brendan Rodgers, Julian Nagelsmann, Graham Potter, and Nuno Espirito Santo are some of the names mentioned in the past few weeks in relation to the Spurs job. (h/t football.london)
But it has not been without hurdles. Nagelsmann has signed a contract at Bayern Munich and Ten Hag has also renewed his Ajax deal.

It remains to be seen which direction Spurs decide to go in. Mourinho has already found a new home in AS Roma after his recent sacking and Levy would hope he can replace the ex-Champions League-winning manager at Spurs as soon as possible.
