According to a report from The Sun, Daniel Levy retains hope of snapping up Brendan Rodgers should Leicester City finish outside the top four.
Rodgers led Leicester to their first-ever FA Cup win last weekend but the subsequent 2-1 defeat to Chelsea on Tuesday has seen the Foxes fall out of the Champions League places.
While the former Liverpool boss has ruled himself out of contention for the Tottenham job, The Sun claim that Levy still retains hope of swooping for him.
It is explained that the Spurs chairman’s hopes have been renewed by Leicester dropping to fifth in the table and that he believes he can convince Rodgers to jump ship if the Foxes fail to qualify for the Champions League.
There is said to be a feeling that Rodgers has taken Leicester as far as he can and that Levy could convince the 48-year-old that he would have a better shot at long-term success at Tottenham.
It is explained that the Spurs chairman is ready to hand Rodgers a big transfer kitty to rebuild the side and is desperate for Spurs to beat Leicester in the final game of the season to ensure the Foxes finish outside the top four.

While the chances of us convincing Rodgers to jump ship from Leicester seem slim, I would certainly not put it beyond Levy to pull a rabbit out of the hat. The Spurs chairman knows that his popularity has taken a huge hit and he might thus be prepared to go the extra step to ensure he gets his man.
