According to Sky Sports News, Feyenoord are increasingly concerned about losing their manager Arne Slot to Tottenham Hotspur.
The Dutch manager is said to be among the top contenders for the Spurs Job, and Feyenoord’s concerns are understood to be growing amongst increasingly.
In an attempt to keep Slot on at the club, Feyenoord are said to be willing to double the Dutchman’s current wages to approximately £3.5m per year. However, this may aid Tottenham if they wish to pursue the appointment of the manager, providing them with the basis to begin negotiations.
Tottenham’s interest, and Feyenoord’s worries, have increased significantly over the past few weeks, after Slot capped off an outstanding season by securing Feyenoord their second Eredivisie title this century.
Contrastingly, Spurs are under their third Manager of the season and currently sit in seventh in the Premier League table after a disappointing campaign. With two games remaining and Champions League qualification out of reach, the London side are fighting for a Europa League place next season.
The Telegraph’s Matt Law has recently reiterated Spurs’ stance on Slot, reporting that the Tottenham chairman is getting closer to deciding his top candidates, as Slot and former Spain and Barcelona Manager Luis Enrique are rated as the two frontrunners for the job.
The North London club are also said to be admiring a raft of managers within the UK too, such as Brentford’s Thomas Frank, Brighton’s Roberto De Zerbi, and Fulham’s Marco Silva, whilst Ange Postecoglou of Celtic is also said to be of interest.
Additionally, the Lilywhites are exploring other managers across the European market, with Sporting CP manager Ruben Amorim and Bayer Leverkusen’s Spanish boss Xabi Alonso both in the frame for the job.
