Recently axed Bayern Munich boss Julian Nagelsmann could soon be on his way to the Premier League, according to reports.
The German tactician was sacked on Friday by Bundesliga giants Bayern following a loss to Bayer Leverkusen that had left the Bavarians trailing Borussia Dortmund by two points in the title race.
But it seems the 35-year-old would not be out of work for long if Tottenham sack under-fire manager Antonio Conte.
The Italian could be sacked anytime soon by Spurs following a recent run of poor results, which culminated in Conte labelling his players as ‘selfish’ and questioning the owners over the club’s record of one trophy in 20 years.
It appeared that the 53-year-old was looking to be given his marching orders during the international break by Daniel Levy. But seven days later, he remains in his role as head coach.
He has spent the week in Italy visiting his family due to the international break and has left assistant coaches Cristian Stellini and Ryan Mason with the training duties.
But should Levy and the club board finally pull the trigger, they will be interested in speaking to Nagelsmann to take the vacant role. Spurs previously targeted Nagelsmann when they sacked Jose Mourinho in 2021, only for the young German to agree to take charge at the Allianz Arena instead.
Should he be contacted, the German might want to wait for a few months to take up the role. That will mean he will sit out the rest of the season while Mason takes interim charge as he did following Mourinho’s dismissal in 2021.
