Speaking in a football.london Q&A, reliable Tottenham Hotspur correspondent Alasdair Gold has dropped an update involving Brighton and Hove Albion boss Graham Potter – with the journalist saying the Lilywhites have ‘definitely’ shown an interest.
Potter has been revered at times for his job on the English south coast this season and has even earned admirers like Man City manager Pep Guardiola (Brighton and Hove Independent).

Indeed, the 45-year-old has entered the Tottenham managerial shortlist as a result, with Gold recently backing reports that Spurs do hold an intrigue (football.london).
In an update, the journalist has dropped another claim on Potter, and while he believes that the Lilywhites ‘definitely’ have him on the radar, he could be a ‘tough sell’ to many supporters.
“He’s definitely one Spurs have looked at, particularly with his playing style,” explained Gold to football.london.
“However, with Brighton teetering above the drop zone, it might be a tough sell to many fans to replace Mourinho to bring in a man who steered a team to 17th (potentially) in the league.”
Transfer Tavern take
A notable dark horse for the job, you could argue Spurs need a more prestigious candidate than Potter despite his plaudits over 2020/2021.
Indeed, figures of the English media have branded him ‘excellent’ (via Miguel Delaney), but the Lilywhites should be looking for a manager with more experience at the top level.
As Julian Nagelsmann takes the job at Bayern Munich, it would appear Erik Ten Hag is the next best thing – especially considering he has drawn comparisons with Guardiola and has experience winning silverware.
