According to a report from Football Fancast, Tottenham Hotspur have identified RB Leipzig manager Julian Nagelsmann as the man to replace Mauricio Pochettino at the helm at Spurs should the team’s form continue to deteriorate.
Pochettino is coming under increasing pressure with Tottenham’s results showing no signs of improving at the moment. While it is claimed that Pochettino’s job is in no immediate danger, it is suggested that Levy has identified Nagelsmann as his primary target.
The 32-year-old enjoyed three successful years at Hoffenheim before taking over at RB Leipzig in the summer, who currently sit in second place in the Bundesliga table.
However, the report makes it clear that Tottenham have not contacted Nagelsmann and will only do so should the team form fail to get better in the coming months.
Some Spurs fans were really excited by the report and urged the club to replace Pochettino with the German immediately while a few opined that he wasn’t the right choice due to his failure to win silverware so far.
A few other fans also questioned why Nagelsmann would abandon his project at Leipzig just months into it.

Great, another young unproven manager with a blank honours page on his CV. When are we going to get a proven serial winner in charge for once?

Has he ever won anything? We need winners.
Would Pep and Klopp improve Spurs? Yes.
Then Levy should find the next Klopp or Pep.
This moment of time we do not need more soft guys like Eddie Howe & Julian Nagelsmann,

Spurs Web Opinion
While I do not believe the club are contemplating sacking Pochettino just yet, all good businesses have contingency plans. So, there is no doubt that Spurs would have a shortlist ready in case they have to replace the Argentine. However, I believe the 47-year-old must at least get until the end of the season to help turn the club’s fortunes around.
