The Athletic revealed on Thursday that the Tottenham managing director is expected to compile a long list of names and that Enrique was likely to be at the top of the Italian’s wishlist.

It was explained that Paratici has been a long-time admirer of the former Barcelona coach, who has been out of work since parting ways with Spain after last year’s World Cup.

The Times have also backed up Tottenham’s interest in Enrique, naming the 50-year-old among the list of managers that Spurs are looking at.

The report adds that the Spaniard would be ready to take over at N17 if he is approached by the Lilywhites.

While Enrique plays possession-based football, which will be a welcome sight at Spurs on the back of the turgid brand of football served up by Mourinho, Nuno and Conte, appointing the Spaniard will be a huge risk.

Not only is he completely untested in the Premier League but he has not been in club football for almost six years, and the game has continued evolving during that time.
