According to a report from The Sun, Daniel Levy believes that he would be taking a gamble by appointing Graham Potter as the next Tottenham boss.
Despite finishing 16th in the table this season, the stats suggest that Brighton could have finished a lot higher had they been even moderately efficient in finishing off their chances.
Potter has thus received rave reviews from some pundits for the style of football he has got the Seagulls playing.
According to Alasdair Gold, even several players in the Tottenham squad have been left impressed by Brighton’s set up and they would thus be in support of Potter getting the job.
The 46-year-old is also said to be the preferred choice of Spurs’ technical performance director Steve Hitchen, who is expected to have a big say in the club’s appointment.
However, if The Sun are to be believed, Levy does have reservations about the English coach. It is explained that while the Brighton boss remains on Levy’s radar, the Spurs chairman believes that it would be a risky move to appoint him.

Potter would be a risky choice but there are a lot of potential upsides to his appointment. He is one of the few coaches we have been linked with, who looks capable of improving the players in our squad.
Since we are not in a position to compete for top players in the market, the only way we can close the gap to the likes of City is by bringing in a coach whose system gets the best out of our players.
