Report: Tottenham’s number one manager target is ready to listen to their offer

The Sun have revealed that Vincent Kompany has now emerged as Tottenham’s number-one target to replace Antonio Conte at the helm.

The report states that Daniel Levy has been ‘blown away’ by the work Kompany has done at Burnley and that the attacking football that he has got the Clarets playing is a huge tick in his favour.

The Tottenham chiefs have allegedly received ‘glowing reports’ about the Belgian, who is said to be seen by some at the North London club as a manager who can give the club ‘a new dimension’.

It is explained that Spurs have watched Pep Guardiola’s former number two, Mikel Arteta, turn Arsenal into title contenders and are hopeful that Kompany could have the same effect at N17, having spent a long time playing under the Manchester City boss.

The Sun add that the 36-year-old would be ‘ready to listen’ to Tottenham if they made a move as he fears that Burnley may not have the funds needed to do well in the Premier League next season.

Kompany would be quite a risky appointment as we have seen several talented young managers fail to make the required step up from the Championship to the Premier League.

While the Belgian might initially command the Tottenham dressing room’s respect, I fear that doubts might start creeping in as soon as the team hit a bad patch, given the 36-year-old’s lack of managerial pedigree.
