The frantic search for a new manager at Spurs continues to take place and Tottenham will be hoping to secure their next head coach as soon as possible.

Ryan Mason will lead the team for the remaining three matches, following the sacking of Jose Mourinho in late April.

Thus far, Spurs have had a torrid time in securing a manager. The club initially hoped to convince Julian Nagelsmann to join, but the German has agreed to join Bayern Munich next season (Mirror).

After this, talks were held with Erik Ten Hag. However, the Dutchman signed a contract extension at Ajax immediately after (The Guardian).

Another candidate for the job appears to be Brendan Rodgers. The Leicester City manager has been linked heavily with the Spurs hot seat. But it remains to be seen whether the 48-year-old would leave the FA Cup finalists and top-four candidates.

Robbie Savage believes that Spurs have a chance of enticing Rodgers to join should Leicester fail to secure a Champions League spot.

The former Leicester man spoke to TeamTalk regarding the chances of taking Rodgers from The Foxes. Savage stated that the Northern Irishman may feel that it could be time to move on this summer.

He said: “Brendan might think it’s the right time to move on.

“Could he do any better than that next season? Liverpool will improve, Manchester clubs will strengthen again, expect Chelsea sign big players and Leicester can’t compete with them financially.

“It’s not inconceivable that Brendan would look at the Tottenham job and think it could be the next step for him. He will stay at Leicester if they are in the Champions League, but what big job will come up in the next year that Rodgers might get?

“He won’t get Liverpool again, the Manchester clubs are out, Thomas Tuchel is doing well at Chelsea, so you are looking at Spurs and Arsenal. Brendan Rodgers is good enough to manage any club in world football,”

It comes just a day after reports emerged that Tottenham have prepared a shortlist of managerial targets (Football London). The summer looks set to be a crucial one in North London, and fans can expect more news to come in the following weeks.

Spurs Web Opinion:

Spurs securing the services of Brendan Rodgers would certainly be a fantastic acquisition. He has consistently impressed at Leicester, where they play good football with a young team. Many of the candidates linked have not been too exciting. It would be fantastic to convince Rodgers to come, but he would have to be backed to rebuild the side.
