Tottenham Hotspur and Jose Mourinho are currently struggling in North London, now out of the FA Cup and clinging onto the top half of the Premier League table.

The Athletic reported earlier this week that figures within Spurs admire 33-year-old Julian Nagelsmann at RB Leipzig amidst question marks over The Special One.

Now, just hours after being linked with the Lilywhites, Nagelsmann has spoken out on whether the Premier League appeals to him as a manager.

He started off by stating that he still has two years left on his current deal with Leipzig, adding that he thinks he will stay for the time being.

However, he did outline his desire to move to the Premier League one day and follow in the footsteps of Jurgen Klopp who made a similar transition.

The young coach was also keen to add that you never know what will happen in football, stating he could move to the Premier League or he could just as easily remain in Germany for his entire career.

He said (Telegraph): “I have a contract now until 2023 so I think I will stay in Leipzig.

”The Premier League is a very interesting league and I can imagine it could be a big aim to be a big manager in the Premier League one day like Jurgen who is very successful. It could be a step in the future.”

“But, you know, in soccer it’s not that easy to plan ‘how long will you be a manager in Leipzig? When will you go to the Premier League?’

“I could imagine going to the Premier League. I could imagine staying as a manager in the Bundesliga for my whole career. It’s cool to be a manager in my own country. I love it.

“But then perhaps in the future, we can meet face-to-face in the Premier League, who knows.”
