Tottenham Hotspur are reported to have admiration for Italian national team boss Roberto Mancini, according to The Telegraph.
The North Londoners are still yet to confirm who will be succeeding Jose Mourinho as the club’s new head coach, despite having parted company with the Portuguese over sixty days ago.
Mancini spent three-and-a-half years as Manchester City manager between 2009 and 2013, helping the Emirati-bankrolled outfit to win the Premier League, FA Cup and Community Shield (transfermarkt).
The Italian went on to have stints in charge at Galatasaray, Inter Milan and Zenit Saint Petersburg before taking up his current position in May 2018.
Mancini has guided Italy into the knockout stages of Euro 2020, where they will face Austria in the knockout stages on Saturday having topped Group A having beaten Wales, Switzerland and Turkey.
Former Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo has held talks with Tottenham over the possibility of taking charge of the club who finished seventh in the Premier League last season.
While Mancini’s Italy have impressed at Euro 2020, whether Daniel Levy would be prepared to wait for a manager involved in the tournament given the urgency to formulate transfer plans and pre-season would be doubtful.
