The Evening Standard have revealed that Tottenham Hotspur are now ready to move to the next stage of their managerial search after having completed the ‘due diligence stage of the process’.

Football Insider reported a couple of days ago that Spurs are now expected to speed up their search for a new head coach as Daniel Levy wants to make a ‘quick appointment’.

The report suggested that Julian Nagelsmann, Luis Enrique, Arne Slot and Vincent Kompany were the four leading contenders and suggested that the Lilywhites are expected to talk to several candidates over the coming days and weeks.

The Evening Standard have now claimed that the process is being led by Levy following Fabio Paratici’s departure and that the Spurs hierarchy are now ready to move to the next stage of the process after having identified the contenders.

The publication reveals that the Tottenham chairman has already spoken to Enrique and Nagelsmann, and he is now seeking discussions with the other candidates in an effort to narrow down the shortlist.

Spurs Web Opinion

It appears as if there is not a clear favourite for the role as things stand and that the club are keeping a relatively open mind going into the interview process.

However, there is a common thread that ties all the rumoured managerial targets together, which is that they play progressive football and are project managers rather than ones who look to achieve instant success.
