Tottenham have been dealt a huge blow as their favourite to replace Jose Mourinho, Julian Nagelsmann has agreed to join Bayern Munich from RB Leipzig. The appointment of Ryan Mason until the end of the season has given Tottenham time to make their decision on their next manager ahead of next season.

But Daniel Levy may well have to look elsewhere to find a perfect candidate. Brendan Rodgers have been linked with a move to Spurs, but as his Leicester City side will likely be playing in the Champions League next season, he will be unlikely that he will be tempted to north London.

According to, Ajax boss Erik ten Hag on the radar. The Dutchman greatly impressing since taking over the Eredivisie giants in 2017. Brighton boss Graham Potter is another with admirers in north London.

Spurs’ profile for their ideal next manager is progressive, attack-minded, favouring possession-based football and, most importantly, fits into the club’s culture.
