Dimitri De Conde joined Genk as a youth coach before being promoted to the post of technical director back in 2015, a role he has held since.
Over the last fear years, he has developed a reputation as a gem finder, helping Genk to snap up several top young players who the club have subsequently sold on for substantial profits.
Outside England, the 48-year-old is also thought to be on the radars of both AS Roma and Atletic Bilbao.
However, with Spurs now having De Conde ‘on their list’, there are said to be ‘fears’ at Genk that their technical director will walk away from the Cegeka Arena at the end of the season.
