Ajax boss Erik ten Hag remains on Tottenham’s list of managerial candidates, according to ESPN.
Back in April, the Guardian claimed Spurs were set to interview Ten Hag for the vacant head coach role.
But soon after that, Ten Hag extended his contract with Ajax and suddenly appeared to be unavailable.
Since then Tottenham have held talks with various alternatives, including Paulo Fonseca and Gennaro Gattuso, both of whom were said to be close to joining in recent days.
However, The Athletic reports discussions with both Fonseca and Gattuso have now broken down – and it looks like Spurs could now go back in for Ten Hag.
ESPN believes Tottenham’s list still includes the 51-year-old Dutchman, who was in charge of Ajax when Mauricio Pochettino’s Spurs beat them in the Champions League final two days ago.
Ten Hag has won two Eredivisie titles with Ajax and would likely prove a popular appointment at this stage, at least compared to Gattuso.
Here’s hoping Spurs can move quickly to bring him in and get on with making some changes to the squad.
