According to a report by journalist Ciro Venerato on Rai’s La Domenica Sportiva (as relayed by Area Napoli), Tottenham Hotspur are eyeing a move for Napoli manager Luciano Spalletti.

Over the last week, multiple outlets have reported that the likes of Julian Nagelsmann, Arne Slot and Luis Enrique are the names who are at the top of Spurs’ wishlist to take over from Antonio Conte (Football Insider).

There have also been suggestions that the North London club could make moves for the likes of Ruben Amorim (Evening Standard), Xabi Alonso (De Telegraaf) and Ange Postecoglou (The Times).

Venerato has now said that Spurs are also eyeing a move for Spalletti, who has guided Napoli to a historic Scudetto win this season.

The journalist revealed that the 64-year-old’s work in Naples has caught the eye of several clubs around Europe, including Spurs, Chelsea and Paris Saint-Germain, who are said to be ‘concretely interested’ in the experienced coach.

He adds that the Serie A champions have already identified Fiorentina’s Vincenzo Italiano and Sassuolo manager Alessio Dionisi as potential replacements for Spalletti if he leaves the Diego Armando Maradona Stadium this summer.

Spurs Web Opinion

Tottenham fans should take this update with a pinch of salt as there is no evidence to suggest that the club are seriously considering appointing Spalleti. 

I do not think the move would be a particularly wise one as I see Napoli’s brilliant recruitment as being the main reason for their success this season rather than Spalleti’s tactical set-up.
