Speaking to Football Insider, a Tottenham Hotspur source believes that chairman Daniel Levy is now closing in on a new manager, with an appointment possible as soon as next week and announcement expected soon after today.
The Lowdown: Spurs still in the manager hunt

Tottenham are now reportedly edging closer to getting their man, with Football Insider sharing some potentially big news.
The Latest: Lilywhites source makes major manager claim
Speaking to the outlet, a ‘Spurs source’ has explained that Tottenham are now confident of appointing a new manager as soon as next week after narrowing their shortlist to just three candidates.
While this managerial trio isn’t named, the club source claimed that Spurs are ‘expected to be in a position’ to announce their appointment soon after today.
Many contenders for the role were chalked off for various reasons, with several candidates appearing to be either unavailable or simply unsuitable.
The Verdict: Exciting times…
After more than a month of searching, this news could come as music to the ears of Spurs supporters.
Tottenham were hopeful of making an announcement before the end of the current campaign, but complications in their search may have severely delayed matters.
Julian Nagelsmann was once their top target but Levy suffered a blow when the German was confirmed to be taking over at Bayern Munich. Brendan Rodgers, another manager admired by Spurs, also publicly dismissed the links to north London.
It’s been a long time coming, but news of Tottenham making a possible announcement soon comes as brilliant news, with the only worry being whether Levy makes the right managerial choice.
