Tottenham ready to pounce on manager who turned down Chelsea

The Lilywhites have moved into pole position

Tottenham are now concentrating on bringing Julian Nagelsmann to north London to fill their vacant manager role after the ex-Bayern man pulled out of negotiations with Chelsea, it has been reported.

Spurs are on the hunt for their third permanent manager in two years after they parted ways with the Antonio last month, leaving his assistant coach Christian Stellini and former Spurs midfielder Ryan Mason in caretaker charge until the end of the season.

There have since been a whole host of names linked with the vacant role, with the likes of Mauricio Pochettino, Vincent Kompany, Will Still, Arne Slot and even Roberto De Zerbi all among those having been mentioned in connection with the north Londn club.

According to reports in Germany however, Spurs could be about to land one of the most promising minds in World Football in the form of Nagelsmann, who was let go by Bayern Munich just days after Tottenham’s own managerial switch.

Nagelsmann withdrew from the running to be the new Chelsea manager on Friday, feeling that the process was too drawn out for his liking, and is not expected to take on a new role until the summer.

That role, however, could be in north London. As per Christian Falk, the German is ‘concentrating’ on negotiations with Spurs, and ‘would accept the job’ were it offered to him by Daniel Levy.

However, it could prove just the post Nagelsmann needs to rebuild his reputation after a mixed stint at Bayern.
