Tottenham Hotspur eyeing Graham Potter as Nuno Espirito Santo replacement

According to Daily Star (h/t Express), Tottenham Hotspur are planning to approach Graham Potter in the near future as they look to replace Nuno Espirito Santo already.

The Brighton and Hove Albion manager was on Spurs’ radar after Jose Mourinho was sacked. But the Seagulls demanded a £15million compensation package that Spurs rejected.

The report claims that they now want to revisit that proposition and their plan to approach the 46-year-old  is ‘inevitable’, with Daniel Levy supposedly a fan of Potter.

Santo was appointed by Daniel Levy and co after a long search for Jose Mourinho’s successor that started in April and went on late into the summer transfer window. The former Wolves manager had a dream start at N17.

Three 1-0 wins in a row meant that the Lilywhites went into the first international break of the season top of the tree. But a run of three successive league defeats after that, including an embarrassing loss to Arsenal, meant that Nuno lost favour amongst the majority of the fanbase.

Potter, on the other hand, has done well to keep Brighton afloat and in the Premier League in the past two seasons. They currently sit 6th in the table and are proving to be the surprise package of the season.

He is contracted until 2025 and Brighton would understandably be against him leaving the Amex especially if they feel they are not being adequately compensated. It is truly fascinating to see how impatient modern football is. With so much at stake nowadays, a handful of losses is enough to cost a manager his job.
