Former Wolves manager Nuno Espirito Santo is the new front-runner for the Tottenham job, according to the Mail.
They report that Nuno has the backing of Daniel Levy and his new managing director Fabio Paratici.
Spurs have been without a manager since sacking Jose Mourinho in April and the search for their new boss has taken them down many a dead end.
But Nuno is apparently the man in the box seat now, and his experience of working in English football before is part of the reason why.
But then a #NotoNuno hashtag sprung up on Twitter among Tottenham fans.
They are clearly unimpressed with the links, and looking to apply the kind of pressure which saw their club’s approach for Gennaro Gattuso end rapidly.
Perhaps the concerns centre around the style of play, and the way Wolves’ season drifted last time around.
Some Wolves fans may not care where Nuno ends up, but others on Twitter had their say on the developments.
Nuno deserves more respect for the job he did at Wolves, taking the club into Europe from the Championship.
That was the thrust of the arguments of many Wolves fans on Twitter.
But if Spurs fans want to kick up a fuss about a very good manager being linked with their club, let them.
What it does mean is that Nuno could be at Molineux for Wolves first home game of next season – in the away dugout.
That would be a compelling sub-plot and here’s how some Old Gold supporters reacted to the news on Twitter:
I’m sure I remember going to that new stadium of yours 15 months ago to watch a very entertaining game where we put 3 past you. Come to think of it I was at Wembley the season before that too and saw us stick another 3 past you there. Not that boring really ay…..— Dave Graham (@daveyboy_g) June 24, 2021
Spurs really don't deserve him— JR (@Walt_Jabsco_) June 24, 2021
Shouldn't take twitter seriously. Could be 5000 tweets involving #NoToNuno 1000 of those could be tweeting the hashtag is stupid. 1001 with this one.— L i t t l e D a n (@LittleDanKMT) June 24, 2021
Spurs could do a lot worse than Nuno and I think he took us as far as he could..
Wolves fans talking about boring football. I think I’m right in saying it only became boring after we lost Raul to injury – with no one decent/exciting to replace him.— pegs (@peggyja95517835) June 24, 2021
So churlish 🤦🏻♀️— Suzi Perry 💙 (@suziperry) June 24, 2021
No respect. Love Nuno so this is hard— David (@LichfieldWolfy) June 24, 2021
For Spurs…a team who have not won anything worth winning in over 3 decades…..the arrogance of that club breathtaking.— Wayne Brown 🧡 🖤 🐺 (@browna0784) June 24, 2021
He deserves better. Yes I know Wolves were a hard watch at times last season but in four years his team produced more memories than we'd managed in four decades. I hope he tells Spurs to do one.— Mark Stokes (@markstokeskm) June 24, 2021
He can do better than Spurs to be honest.— Evonne O (@f1lover75) June 24, 2021
Spurs fans, who’ve won barely more than Walsall, have always had ideas above their station. Nothing new here.— ElNombre (@ElNombre479) June 25, 2021
That club seems a totally toxic place to be at the moment. Might be good for them to get nuno in who built a great relationship with us wolves fans.— John cooper (@cjohncooper) June 24, 2021
