Reports suggest that Tottenham Hotspur have agreed in principle for Wolves manager Nuno Espirito Santo to take over at the club.

The Portuguese was linked with the job earlier in the summer and a report by the Telegraph claims that Daniel Levy has finally ended the interview process and is close to appointing the Portuguese manager.

Spurs have been previously linked with the likes of former boss Mauricio Pochettino, Erik Ten Hag, Paulo Fonseca, Maurizio Sarri, and Gennaro Gattuso.

Regardless, fans were left displeased with how the search for a new manager was ongoing, as well as how managers distanced themselves from the club’s managerial job. Therefore, Levy has decided to appoint a manager presently than wait for who’d be available after the ongoing Euro 2020 competition.

They had eyes on Italy’s Roberto Mancini and Belgium’s Roberto Martinez but both men would only be able to take the job after the start of pre-season.

The club have appointed a managing director of football in the person of Fabio Paratici who has held takes with Nuno. There were concerns that the Portuguese was being considered for the managerial role at Turkish outfit Fenerbahce but they are not interested in hijacking the deal.

Levy believes that Nuno’s building style is suitable for the club and it’s a no-brainer that the 47-year-old will have his work cut out for him from the start after the way the season ended for the club.

Meanwhile, on his arrival, he will prioritize the security of Kane’s future at the club amid reports that the Englishman wants to leave. Man City have been linked with a move for the forward who is currently on duty with England at the ongoing Euros.

Regardless, Levy doesn’t want Kane to leave and is ready to price him out of a move to the Etihad and also turn down City’s request to offer a player plus cash deal for the striker.
