Fabrizio Romano reports Spurs have had ‘positive’ talks with 37-year-old

Fabrizio Romano has revealed that Tottenham’s discussions with Burnley boss Vincent Kompany have been ‘positive’.

Over the last week and a half, multiple outlets have revealed that Julian Nagelsmann has become Tottenham’s top managerial target, with the North London club expected to make a strong attempt to persuade the German to take the job (Independent).

The Athletic’s David Ornstein said on Rio Ferdinand’s YouTube Channel a couple of days ago that Spurs have indeed made contact with the 35-year-old.

However, he added that the deal is not done just yet and that the likes of Kompany, Arne Slot and Luis Enrique also remain on the Lilywhites’ radar.

If Romano’s latest update is to be believed, Nagelsmann is not the only candidate Spurs have spoken with, with the club also said to have held ‘positive’ talks with Kompany.

Romano also confirmed that the Burnley boss is far from the only candidate being considered by Tottenham at the moment.

He said on the Here We Go Podcast: “Vincent Kompany had a conversation with Tottenham, it was a positive conversation.

“But of course, he’s not the only candidate.

“There is a list of candidates, and so let’s see how Tottenham will proceed on the manager, but also on the director situation.”

Spurs Web Opinion

It appears like Spurs reached out to both Enrique and Kompany previously but have focussed their efforts on Nagelsmann since the German withdrew himself from the race for the Chelsea job.

Having allowed Pochettino to go to Chelsea, the Spurs chairman has to pull out all the stops to bring the former Bayern Munich boss in.
