Tottenham have approached former Lille manager Christophe Galtier but face competition to hire him, according to reports in Italy.
Galtier left Lille straight after leading them to the Ligue 1 title this season, edging out Mauricio Pochettino’s Paris Sant-Germain to seal an unexpected trophy earlier this month.
Spurs have been heavily linked with a reunion with Pochettino (via The Athletic), but PSG sporting director Leonardo has now suggested the Argentine is set to stay in the French capital.
And so it seems Tottenham may have turned their attentions to the manager who trounced Pochettino this term.
Italian outlet TuttoMercatoWeb claims Galtier was about to join another Ligue 1 club, Nice, but is now considering offers from elsewhere after three approaches.
It is believed Spurs, Real Madrid and Lazio have all contacted the 54-year-old, so he may the choice of managing in England, Spain or Italy.
Galtier’s name hasn’t been mentioned much in the British press when it comes to Tottenham, but that might be because he appeared set for the Nice job.
Now that’s in doubt, perhaps an English outlet will back up what TuttoMercatoWeb is saying.
