Tottenham could make fresh approaches for Mauricio Pochettino and Erik ten Haag after talks with Antonio Conte collapsed, according to the London Evening Standard.
The report, along with many other outlets, claims Conte will not become Spurs’ new manager. The Italian is apparently concerned about a lack of transfer funds, while Tottenham were put off by Conte’s unwillingness to blood young players.
All of which means Tottenham’s search for a new head coach rolls on, and it looks like they will now go back in for previous targets.
The Standard says Spurs could ‘make a final attempt’ to get Pochettino out of Paris Saint-Germain, though it appears the former Tottenham manager could be destined to remain in the French capital because of his contract situation.
Meanwhile, it is believed the Londoners might revive their interest in Ten Hag, who recently signed a contract extension with Ajax but could still be available.
Tottenham are reportedly close (via the Guardian) to appointing Fabio Paratici as director if football, so perhaps he will expedite the process of hiring a new manager. The sooner it happens the better.
