According to a report from The Sun, Tottenham Hotspur are plotting a move to make Brendan Rodgers the club’s next head coach.
It has been revealed that Spurs have suffered a blow in their pursuit of a new boss as Julian Nagelsmann was announced as the new Bayern Munich manager from next season.
It has subsequently been suggested that the North Londoners are set to turn their attentions to other names on their radar, with Rodgers being high on the list.
The Sun have claimed that the Leicester boss is the man Daniel Levy is keen on appointing and that the Tottenham chairman is trying to persuade his fellow executives that he would be the most suitable candidate.
The report adds that Spurs tried to appoint Rodgers back in 2012 but he snubbed the club’s approach in favour of a move to Liverpool.
Rodgers insisted last week when asked about the speculation linking him with the Tottenham job that he is fully focussed on his job at the King Power Stadium.
However, The Sun suggest that Spurs remain ‘confident’ of being able to attract the Northern Irishman this summer.

I do not see Rodgers leaving Leicester if they qualify for the Champions League. Given how high the 48-year-old’s stock is at the moment, Levy would likely have to give him guarantees that there is money to spend to have any chance of attracting him.
However, that is not a promise the Spurs chairman would be in a position to make under the current economic climate.
