Kicker have revealed that Jesse Marsch has rejected an approach from Tottenham Hotspur in favour of taking over at RB Leipzig.
Julian Nagelsmann was reported to be Tottenham’s number one target to replace Jose Mourinho but the club will now have to look elsewhere after the German coach agreed to take over from Hansi Flick at Bayern Munich at the end of the season.
Reports indicate that Spurs have now shifted their attention to the other names on their shortlist, which include Brendan Rodgers, Erik Ten Hag, Gareth Southgate and Ralf Rangnick.
Marsch, whose stock has risen considerably since he took over at RB Salzburg two years ago, was also said to be on the club’s radar.
However, Kicker now report that the American is likely to stay within the Red Bull family and replace Nagelsmann as Leipzig boss.
The report asserts that Marsch has rejected approaches from Spurs and Eintracht Frankfurt in favour of taking over at Leipzig.
Although the 47-year-old is said to have agreed to take the job, it is revealed that Leipzig and Salzburg are yet to reach an agreement.
