Tottenham Hotspur are still looking for a new manager after parting ways with Antonio Conte in March. The Premier League club, who are currently sixth in the table, have not held any talks with former Bayern Munich boss Julian Nagelsmann, who was dismissed by the German champions last month.
Nagelsmann, who led RB Leipzig to the last four of the Champions League and won the Bundesliga title and two German Supercups with Bayern, is one of the most sought-after coaches in Europe. He has been linked with Chelsea, who are also without a permanent manager since sacking Graham Potter in April.
However, Spurs are not interested in Nagelsmann and are exploring other options for their next head coach. They have been under the caretaker charge of Ryan Mason since April, when Cristian Stellini was sacked as interim manager.
According to reports, Tottenham have contacted Roberto de Zerbi, the Brighton manager, and Vincent Kompany, the Burnley manager and former Manchester City defender, about the vacancy. They have also not ruled out a return for Mauricio Pochettino, who was popular with the fans and players during his five-year spell at Spurs.
Pochettino is currently in charge of Paris Saint-Germain, but his future is uncertain after failing to win the Ligue 1 title and losing to Manchester City in the Champions League semi-finals. Spurs fans chanted his name during their 2-1 win over Everton on Monday night.
Tottenham face a challenging task of finding a suitable manager who can rebuild the team, end their trophy drought, and keep them in the top four amid competition from Newcastle United and other clubs. They also have to deal with the uncertainty over Fabio Paratici, their managing director of football, who is appealing against his global ban from football.
