Highly-rated Feyenoord manager Arne Slot has reportedly told his club he wants to occupy the vacant managerial seat at Tottenham Hotspur.
According to 90min, the Dutchman has emerged as the front-runner to become Tottenham’s next permanent manager after a successful season in Feyenoord, whom he led to the Eredivisie title.
His success did not start this season, as he also led the Dutch club to the Europa Conference League final last season despite losing some key players.
His emergence as a tactically astute manager has alerted several top European clubs, including Tottenham, who are looking for a permanent manager after sacking Antonio Conte earlier this year.
There were fears that Slot would be unwilling to swap the comforts of Rotterdam for North London, but according to 90min, he wants to quit De Kuip this summer.
But to complete the deal for Slot, Tottenham must agree a compensation fee with Feyenoord. A reported £6million compensation package had been quoted for the manager and his two assistants. However, according to the report, talks between the two clubs and Slot’s agent Rafaela Pimenta around the compensation amount are set to accelerate this week.
Meanwhile, Spurs are interested in former Barcelona coach Luis Enrique and recently sacked Julian Nagelsmann. Sporting CP boss Ruben Almiron is also on the list of targets.
