Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly considering RB Leipzig boss Julian Nagelsmann as a potential replacement for Jose Mourinho. Following a 3-0 loss against Manchester City, it has been reported that Mourinho’s long-term future at the club is now under intense scrutiny.
According to the Athletic, Spurs are keeping tabs on Nagelsmann, whose stock continues to rise within the game and he guided RB Leipzig to the semi-finals of the Champions League last season. Amid Nagelsmann’s links to Spurs, coming up against English opposition has added a new wrinkle to the reports.
Interestingly, the 33-year-old has admitted that he can imagine following in the footsteps of Reds boss Jurgen Klopp.
“I have a contract now until 2023 so I think I will stay in Leipzig,” said Nagelsmann in an interview with the Telegraph. “The Premier League is a very interesting league and I can imagine it could be a big aim to be a big manager in the Premier League one day like Jurgen who is very successful. It could be a step in the future.”
