The Daily Express have reported that Tottenham Hotspur have identified Wolverhampton Wanderers manager Nuno Espirito Santo as a potential replacement for Jose Mourinho.

The pressure on Mourinho has continued to mount over the last few weeks, with Spurs continuing to struggle for consistency on the pitch.

Julian Nagelsmann, Brendan Rodgers, Massimiliano Allegri have all been linked with the Spurs hot-seat over recent weeks.

Maurizio Sarri was the latest name mooted as a potential replacement for Mourinho but Alasdair Gold has revealed that there is no truth to the rumours linking the Italian with the Tottenham job.

The Express claim that Spurs are considering moving for Espirito Santo, with Daniel Levy said to be a fan of the Portuguese coach.

The report suggests that the Wolves boss has aksed his agent Jorge Mendes to look for another club after growing frustrated with a lack of financial backing at Molineux.

It is also said that winning the Carabao Cup would not be enough to save Mourinho’s job and the 58-year-old’s fate is likely to depend on whether the club achieve European qualification.

Spurs Web Opinion

If you thought Jose Mourinho’s style of play was boring at times, watching Espirito Santo’s sides is like watching paint dry. The 47-year-old is extremely pragmatic and does not ever seem to allow the attacking talent that Wolves have at their disposal to express themselves. One only has to look at how Jota has thrived at Liverpool when he has been given more freedom.
