According to The Times, Tottenham Hotspur are keen on Sporting Lisbon boss Rúben Amorim as they continue to search for a permanent manager.
Following the departure of Antonio Conte in March, Spurs have appointed and sacked caretaker manager Cristian Stellini before Ryan Mason took the role on an interim basis until the end of the season.
Amorim is one of Europe’s most highly rated young coaches and the 38-year-old has indicated that he would be interested in joining the North London club.
Former Bayern Munich manager Julian Nagelsmann remains the first choice option of the Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy, but the German is used to working under a sporting director.
Spurs are currently without one after the resignation of Fabio Paratici last month which could prove to be a stumbling block when in discussions with Nagelsmann.
Ryan Mason’s side host Crystal Palace on Saturday before facing high-flying Aston Villa a week later.
