Daniel Levy took the decision to part company with manager Mauricio Pochettino late last month after the club’s poor start to the new season.

Heading into the international break, Tottenham found themselves in the unfamilar position of fourteenth in the Premier League table and at risk of being cast adrift from the race for the top four and the lucrative prospect of another season of Champions League football.

Jose Mourinho’s appointment as head coach has paid dividends having won all three of his opening fixtures which has seen the club move up to fifth in the table and are now just six points behind rivals Chelsea.

While Mourinho’s arrival has seen a positive impact, it may hamper the chances of one potential arrival to the Champions League finalists.

The Sun report that Pochettino’s exit could affect the chances of QPR striker Eberechi Eze moving to N17.

It is claimed that Spurs were planning on making a £20million offer for the 21-year-old during the January transfer window.

Eze was said to be keen to link up with Pochettino given his track record of developing young talent but could now remain with the Championship side for the remainder of the season.

Chelsea, Leicester and West Ham have all been closely monitoring the forward’s progress this season.
