According to an update by Italian news outlet La Gazzetta dello Sport, as shared by Football Italia, Tottenham Hotspur chairman Daniel Levy could set up a meeting in London with former Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri as soon as next week.
Levy could hold Sarri meeting
Spurs have recently been linked with Sarri as a possible candidate to replace under fire boss Jose Mourinho, with recent claims having emerged that the Lilywhites were ‘following’ him (Ciro Venerato).
Now, in a development, La Gazzetta have gone a step further by saying Levy could hold a meeting with the Italian in London imminently and has been targeting him for at least a month.
The former Juventus coach is still ‘under contract’ with the Serie A giants after being sacked almost a year ago – just two weeks after he delivered a Scudetto title.
Spurs, however, are in a ‘crisis’ mode and are giving ‘serious consideration’ to Mourinho’s successor – with this report relaying suggestions he could even be dismissed before the end of the campaign.
Sarri, as a result, has apparently been made aware of this and could meet with Tottenham and Levy next week.
Transfer Tavern take
Chelsea star Jorginho is a huge fan of his former manager judging by how he has described working under the 62-year-old, calling him a ‘extraordinary’ and a ‘magnificent coach’ (Football Italia).
He also guided former club Chelsea to a Europa League triumph, but we believe that while he is a credible dark horse, priority should be given to Julian Nagelsmann if Mourinho is in fact relieved of his duties.
The Daily Mail recently claimed that those within Spurs view him as the ‘perfect’ candidate, and it’s hard to disagree with that sentiment given how he has managed to challenge Bayern Munich’s Bundesliga dominance this season with RB Leipzig.
