Former Premier League striker, Gabby Agbonlahor has claimed that Tottenham may now sign an unknown manager after missing out on a number of first-choice targets (Football Insider).

If reports are to be believed, Spurs have already fallen short in their pursuits of a number of big-name managers, including Julian Nagelseman, Brendan Rodgers and Mauricio Pochettino.

It was also reported earlier this month that the North London club had pulled out of talks with Antonio Conte due to his excessive demands.

However, Spurs have moved to hire Fabio Paratici as the club’s new Sporting Director and The Telegraph claim that Tottenham will move quickly to sign the former Juventus man’s top managerial target.

Fabrizio Romano has even hinted that Spurs still hold out hope of hiring a new manager before the Euros start on Friday (14:13 onwards).

Agbonlahor has now claimed that he thinks Spurs will go for a manager we have not heard of, pointing towards Nuno Espirito Santo being hired by Wolves as an example.

He said: “It might be a manager out there that we don’t know of that might get the job.

“I think that might be where Spurs go.

“We hear of these new managers who come and do well. Look at Nuno Espirito Santo at Wolves. Nobody had heard of him and he came in and did a great job.

“There are managers out there that the sporting director will know.

“I can just see Spurs are not going to give a manager loads and loads of money. Whatever manager comes in is one that will have to accept that and a top manager won’t accept that.

“It’s going to be a strange summer for Spurs.”
