Wolverhampton Wanderers manager Nuno Espirito Santo is reportedly on the radar of Tottenham Hotspur.

The club are languishing in eighth place in the Premier League table and are six points adrift of the top four.

This week, they inexplicably went out of the Europa League to Dinamo Zagreb, despite leading 2-0 after the first-leg.

Mourinho started off the season very well, but things have quickly changed and The Special One now finds himself in a precarious position.

90min say Spurs see Brendan Rodgers as the top man to replace the Portuguese, but Wolves boss Nuno is also ‘admired’ by some people in the Spurs hierarchy.

It’s been a tricky old season for Wolves and Nuno has indeed cut a forlorn figure on the touchline at times.

While there is no doubt Nuno could do a job for them, the 47-year-old only a signed a new deal in September 2020, and has also spoken about the state of the team as if he’s in it for the long haul at Molineux.
