Tottenham Hotspur reportedly turn their attention to former Wolverhampton Wanderers head coach Nuno Espirito Santo.

Tottenham Hotspur have reportedly now turned their attention to former Wolverhampton Wanderers head coach Nuno Espirito Santo, as their search for a new manager continues.

Since the sacking of Jose Mourinho in April, Spurs have been linked with a plethora of names including Brandan Rodgers, Erik ten Hag, Mauricio Pochettino, Antonio Conte, Paulo Fonseca and Genaro Gattuso, but so far chairman Daniel Levy has been left frustrated in the search for a new manager.

According to the Daily Mail, Nuno has the backing of both Levy and new Football Managing Director Fabio Paratici, who now view him as the leading candidate for the vacancy.

The report also states that they are considering the appointment of Brighton & Hove Albion boss Graham Potter, although the Portuguese head coach is currently their preferred target.

After a brief spell with Porto, Nuno joined Wolves in May 2017 where he worked for four years, guiding the club to the Championship title in his first season at the helm.

The 47-year-old established Wolves as Premier League regulars, securing successive seventh-placed finishes before ending the 2020-21 campaign in 13th place.
