Tottenham Hotspur want Julian Nagelsmann to replace sacked Jose Mourinho — and the RB Leipzig boss may arrive before the season ends.
Mourinho was axed on Monday after 17 months in charge at Spurs, with player power understood to have played a part in his dismissal just six days before the Carabao Cup final against Manchester City.
Former Charlton boss Chris Powell and ex-Spurs midfielder Ryan Mason will take caretaker charge at Wembley.
But the duo have not been told they will definitely remain in charge for the rest of the season.
Spurs hope Nagelsmann may arrive before the summer — although the 33-year-old is under contract for two years.
Bayern have also been linked with him after Hansi Flick announced his desire to quit this summer.
But Spurs believe they can lure Nagelsmann, who wants to manage in England.
Chairman Daniel Levy has been weighing up sacking Mourinho, 58, for weeks.
But SunSport has been told several senior players spoke to Levy last week between the home defeat by Manchester United and Friday’s 2-2 draw at Everton, which left their hopes of a top-four finish almost over.
