Lazio manager, Simone Inzaghi, has admitted that he is yet to make a decision on his future amidst rumoured interest from Tottenham.

Inzaghi has done a commendable job since taking over at Lazio in 2016, boasting of an excellent win percentage of 53.6 during his reign. 

However, the Serie A club’s defeat to Roma over the weekend has ended any hopes they had of qualifying for next season’s Champions League.

The 45-year-old’s current deal runs out in the summer and sources from Italy have claimed that Tottenham are eyeing him as a potential replacement to Jose Mourinho.

It was previously suggested that the Italian would not say no to Spurs amidst the uncertainty surrounding Lazio at the moment.

After his side’s defeat in the Rome derby, Inzaghi admitted that he will sit down for contract talks with the club after the final game of the season and insisted that he is ‘optimistic’ about finding a solution. 

He is quoted by Gianluca Di Marzio’s website as saying: “I am optimistic by nature. 

“Now, we will finish the remaining fixtures, which has been such a tough calendar. Then we will talk about it [contract].”

As is the case with Ten Hag (and potentially Conte), Inzaghi could be using Tottenham’s rumoured interest as leverage in contract negotiations with Lazio. However, with the uncertainty surrounding the futures of so many managers across Europe, I can understand why Levy is playing the waiting game rather than rushing to make an appointment.
