Speaking on Italian television show Si Gonfia La Rete (via Area Napoli), journalist Raffaele Auriemma has dropped a Tottenham Hotspur managerial claim involving Maurizio Sarri – with the reporter claiming he ‘would like’ to join either Spurs or Arsenal.
The Lowdown: Sarri touted as candidate
When it comes to Sarri, the media in England and Italy have two very contrasting views on the 62-year-old possibly being appointed by Tottenham.
Sources closes to home, however, like football.london reporter Alasdair Gold, dismiss Sarri as a boss currently attracting interest from Spurs.
The Latest: Sarri ‘would like’ to join Spurs
Bringing another claim from Italy, journalist Auriemma has told TV show Si Gonfia La Rete that Sarri (via Area Napoli) ‘would like’ to join either Spurs or Arsenal.
The reporter wasn’t alone, either, with another journalist on the programme, Christian Bosco, stating the Serie A-winning boss ‘would prefer‘ a move back to the Premier League.
It is also added by Auriemma that Sarri’s agent, Fali Ramadani, was in England ‘until a few days ago‘.
The Verdict: Spurs, you know what to do…
The Transfer Tavern has often promoted Sarri as an ideal candidate for the Spurs job and somebody chairman Daniel Levy shouldn’t dismiss so quickly.
He promotes a possession-based, high-pressing style which should be a real incentive for Tottenham to consider making the move.
It is reported that Levy desires a boss who can bring back an attack-minded way of playing and Sarri may be a brilliant candidate to reinstall that exciting brand of football at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
Sarri has an admirer, too, in Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola.
The Spaniard, in awe of Sarri’s managerial style, lauded him as ‘one of the absolute best’ who implements a style of football which is ‘out of this world’ (Planet Football).
He is available, a free agent and allegedly keen on the job – Levy, you know what to do.
