Tottenham chief Daniel Levy will seek talks with Roberto Martinez and Nuno Espirito Santo as he looks to replace Jose Mourinho, according to reports. Spurs brutally sacked the 58-year-old last month. And they’ll need to get this appointment right as they look to bounce back following a problematic campaign.
Tottenham chose to sack Mourinho just days before their Carabao Cup final clash with Manchester City.
And, in the time since, speculation has mounted over who Levy will replace the 58-year-old with.
Tottenham had been hoping to appoint Julian Nagelsmann but, following the announcement Hansi Flick won’t be staying at Bayern Munich, he’s now beyond their reach.
There’s interest in Brendan Rodgers, too, but he seems to be committed to Leicester City for the time being.
And Erik Ten Hag was on their radar, yet has since signed a new contract with Ajax.

Now, Tottenham fans are wondering who the club will appoint as Mourinho’s replacement as they seek a better season next time out.
And the Mirror claim Tottenham are due to seek talks with Martinez and Nuno.
Martinez has done well in charge of Belgium, with the Red Devils the favourites to win the upcoming European Championships.
He’s won the FA Cup with Wigan in the past, while also doing well during his time at Everton following the departure of David Moyes in 2013.
And though he’ll be difficult to entice, Tottenham remain keen on his appointment regardless.

Regarding Nuno, there’s a sense his time with Wolves is drawing to a close.
He steered the club into the Premier League back in 2018 and, in the time since, has turned them into regulars in the top flight.
Tottenham are said to have not completely given up hope of appointing Rodgers, despite his commitment to Leicester.
But, with that primed to be a difficult task, it seems like Spurs are readying themselves to look elsewhere.
Mourinho has claimed he won’t rush into any big decisions following his departure from Tottenham, saying: “I have no plans.
“I am going on with my normal life. I feel fresh. I feel calm. I am on holiday.
“I have more time to be doing my homework and analysis. I’ll wait to be back in football.
“Not just for the right club, but for the right culture. Maybe next season is premature, we will see.”
Toby Alderweireld, meanwhile, believes interim boss Ryan Mason has modelled his style of management on Mauricio Pochettino.
“We respect him, he is a big personality, how he talks, how he presents himself,” said the Belgium international.
“That says a lot about him — he’s 29 but he presents himself as very mature.
“Everyone knows he played under Pochettino, he has a lot of ideas from him and we only can agree that’s very good.
“You can see the similarities, how he wants to train, how the sessions are.
“It feels very familiar.”
Tottenham face Sheffield United in the Premier League tonight knowing they sorely need a win to boost their chances of qualifying for next season’s Champions League.
The Blades have already been relegated, having won just five of their 34 matches so far.
