According to reports from Italy, Daniel Levy has contacted the agent of Maurizio Sarri in a bid to install the 62-year-old as the new Tottenham Hotspur manager.
The report by Football Italia claims that, following the sacking of Jose Mourinho on Monday, sources have revealed that Levy and the ENIC Tottenham hierarchy have reached out to Sarri’s agent Fali Ramadani to offer the former Chelsea manager the Spurs job.
It is then stated that, should the Italian accept the offer, he would take over at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium this summer, with Sarri himself reportedly be eager to return to football after being sacked from Juventus last year.
However, Football Italia also reported that a number of Serie A clubs including AS Roma are also in contact with the Tuscan coach, with it being claimed that the Stadio Olimpico appears to be the 62-year-old’s favoured destination.
Would Sarri be a good appointment for Spurs?
Transfer Tavern Take
With The Guardian reporting that Levy wants to appoint an attack-minded manager to replace Mourinho, and with the philosophy of ‘Sarri-ball’ being fast-paced, free-flowing and very attacking, appointing the Italian would certainly appear to tick this box for the Tottenham chairman.
However, with both the players of Chelsea and Juventus failing to fully adapt to ‘Sarri-ball’ in his time at either club, it could be argued that the appointment of the 62-year-old would still represent something of a risk for Spurs.
