Ex-Ajax star Kenneth Perez believes that Arne Slot will leave Feyenoord at the end of the season if a decent club comes calling.
Tottenham’s efforts for the moment seem to be focused on trying to persuade Julian Nagelsmann to replace Antonio Conte after the German had ruled himself out of running for the Chelsea job last week (Telegraph).
The Independent reported a couple of days ago that Daniel Levy will make a strong attempt to persuade the 35-year-old, who allegedly wants a decisive say in transfer dealings before accepting the job.
The report added that in case the Spurs are unable to convince Nagelsmann to take the job, they are expected to turn his attention to Slot.
The Dutchman is on course to guide Feyenoord to the Eredivisie title and it was suggested by Gazzetta dello Sport on Tuesday that Levy is ‘tempted’ to give the job to the 44-year-old, having seen the success that Erik Ten Hag has had since his move to Manchester United.
Perez believes that it would not be difficult for any big club to take poach Slot from De Kuip this summer.
The pundit said on ESPN’s podcast Voetbalpraat (as relayed by FR-Fans) about the Feyenoord boss: “I think he will leave, if a good club comes, he will go.”
Spurs Web Opinion
It seems fairly clear that Slot is the man Tottenham are likely to turn to in case a move for Nagelsmann falls through.
However, there is no doubt that other Premier League clubs (such as Palace and West Ham) would also approach the Dutchman and potentially even have him as their top target.
