Tottenham are considering the appointment of an assistant to help managing director of football Fabio Paratici, according to The Sun. 

Paratici joined Spurs last summer from Juventus, where he spent almost 11 years as the club’s sporting director. 

The 49-year-old got to work in bringing new players through the Hotspur Way door straight away, including the loan signing of Cristian Romero as well as January acquisitions Dejan Kulsuevski and Rodrigo Bentancur, who he signed for the Bianconeri himself.

And with the summer transfer window fast approaching, The Sun claim that Spurs want to give Paratici some extra support with the potential addition of a No.2 by his side. 

Paratici had been working alongside technical performance director Steve Hitchen throughout the season, but has been operating on his own since the latter’s departure in February.

Hitchen resigned from his post at Spurs after seeing his role diminish since the Italian’s arrival and was most recently in talks for a position at relegation-threatened Everton (The Athletic). 

Spurs Web Opinion 

Paratici can’t do the transfer side of things on his own as there would be too much out there to look for, so it is positive that Spurs are looking at getting him some support. 

It looks to be a step in the right direction after losing Hitchen, but hopefully they are able to employ someone that has a good eye for what the club needs going forward.
