Can you name all 10 of these obscure Tottenham signings? Let's get started! Who is this?

Martinez, who has enjoyed spells in the Premier League already with both Wigan Athletic and Everton, is also a previous FA Cup winner – having guided his Latics team to one of the biggest upsets in cup final history against Manchester City last decade.

As per the Mail, he would be interested in the Tottenham job after completing this summer’s postponed European Championships.

This comes a year and a half after the Daily Star revealed he was very keen on succeeding Mauricio Pochettino before Levy opted for Mourinho instead.

Transfer Tavern take

He is not without his credentials, managing to guide Belgium to the World Cup semi-finals in 2018 where they eventually clinched third in the tournament at England’s expense.

Harry Redknapp has also praised the Spaniard in past seasons and even went as far as to recommend him for the Three Lions post in 2014.

The former Lilywhites boss called Martinez ‘excellent’ for his job at Goodison Park and recommended him alongside Brendan Rodgers as top choices for England (Daily Mirror).

As Tottenham reportedly hunt for an attack-minded coach who can re-install that exciting brand of football back in north London, Martinez could actually be a credible dark horse.

He is a known disciple of Barcelona legend Johan Cruyff and takes inspiration from his style of dominating games, something which could entice Levy and co into the appointment.
