According to a report from The Sun, Graham Potter is still in the running to be Tottenham’s next head coach, with Nuno Espirito Santo also in contention.

After Tottenham ended talks with Paulo Fonseca and Gennaro Gattuso, Porter and former Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo reportedly became the leading candidates for the vacancy.

The Daily Mail claimed on Thursday that Nuno was the front-runner for the job, having the support of both Daniel Levy and Fabio Paratici.

However, The Sun now claim that Potter is still one of the favourites for the Spurs job, potentially even ahead of the Portuguese coach.

Levy is said to be keen on appointing the Brighton boss, who has been heralded for the style of play he has implemented at the Amex Stadium.

The report adds that the former Swansea and Ostersunds coach has already been sounded out by Spurs and wants to make the move to North London.

It is also suggested that Brighton would not stand in the 46-year-old’s way should he decide to join Tottenham, even though they would want adequate compensation, with his contract running until 2025.

Spurs Web Opinion

I have been on the Potter train from day one and the only other candidate I would have preferred over the Brighton boss, would have been Pochettino. Despite the shambolic manner in which the club have handled this managerial chase, if we end up with Potter, I believe we would have stumbled on to the best candidate for the job.
