Tottenham are keeping a close eye on Wolves manager Nuno Espirito Santo as a potential replacement for Jose Mourinho, according to the Daily Mirror.

Mourinho’s position is currently under serious threat, with Spurs currently six points off the top four and on course to miss out on Champions League for a second consecutive season following just five victories since mid-January.

Failure to finish in Europe’s elite competition could see Mourinho get the sack, and the Mirror believe that Daniel Levy is an admirer of Santo, whose done an incredible job at Molineux.

The Portuguese won the Championship in his first season and has since taken Wolves into the top seven before reaching the quarter finals of the Europa League last term.

But the 47-year-old has constantly been linked away from the west Midlands despite having more than two years remaining on the current deal, meaning his compensation package is expected to cost around £8m should Tottenham make their move.
