According to a report by Football Insider, Daniel Levy and co have made an approach through third parties for RB Leipzig manager Julian Nagelsmann to join Tottenham.
Indeed, a Lilywhites source has apparently told the outlet that Spurs already established contact via third parties as the search begins for Mourinho’s potential successor.
Tottenham make Nagelsmann contact
The Portuguese was sacked on Monday following a very bizarre 2020/2021 campaign at the helm, one which started off brightly and briefly saw them climb to the top of the Premier League.
Now, as per Football Insider, Tottenham have made contact for Nagelsmann as a possible heir and are keen to enquire over his interest in the vacant post.
In the mean time, the club have confirmed that Ryan Mason will take interim charge for the remainder of this season.
The Lilywhites face stern competition from Bayern Munich for Nagelsmann but are apparently hopeful they can steal a march.
Transfer Tavern take
Lauded as a ‘fearless’ coach by Leipzig regular Tyler Adams (Bundesliga), he has held in very high esteem by sections of the media – and Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola even heaped praise on Nagelsmann as far back as three years ago.
His glowing reputation and electric brand of football is one of the main reasons why we believe he is a great managerial candidate and should be the number one priority for Spurs – especially considering he has been dubbed Europe’s ‘most exciting’ coaching talent (Lutz Pfannenstiel via Goal).
A report from the Daily Mail recently even claimed that those within Tottenham see him as the ‘perfect’ option – and it’s hard to argue with their assessment.
