Tottenham Hotspur have reportedly made contact with Jose Mourinho amid uncertainty surrounding Mauricio Pochettino's future.
The incumbent Spurs boss finds himself under serious pressure following a miserable run of results this season, including a 7-2 defeat to Bayern Munich and a loss on penalties against Colchester United in the EFL Cup.
Mourinho, meanwhile, has been out of a job since being sacked by Manchester United in December 2018.
According to Soccerlink, Spurs have reached out to the Mourinho camp as the North London club plans for life after Pochettino.
It is claimed that Mourinho rejected the offer to become Lyon manager because he wants to take the Spurs job once it becomes available.
Pochettino, who became Spurs boss in 2014, has been heavily linked with taking the Manchester United job even before Mourinho was sacked by the Old Trafford hierarchy.
