Tottenham set to launch Nuno Espirito Santo bid as Spurs eye Portuguese over Graham Potter


Former Wolves manager Nuno Espirito Santo is now the ‘serious leading candidate’ to become the next Tottenham Hotspur manager, according to reports. Nuno left Wolves at the end of the 2020/21 season and was linked to the Everton job, but now appears to be in line to become Jose Mourinho’s successor at Spurs.

Tottenham’s search for a new manager has taken several twists and turns since Mourinho and his staff were sacked on April 19.

Chairman Daniel Levy originally targeted Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers and Ajax coach Erik Ten Hag, but neither showed much interest in the role.


Spurs flirted with former manager Mauricio Pochettino before having talks with former Inter Milan boss Antonio Conte, ex-Roma manager Paulo Fonseca and Gennaro Gattuso after he left Fiorentina.

Levy and director of technical performance Steve Hitchen have veered this way and that over the past two months, with the appointment of Fabio Paratici as director of football further muddying the waters.

The Portuguese manager did not land that job but is ‘understood to be attracted to the prospect of managing’ Spurs next season.

Nuno spent four years with Wolves, bringing them up from the Championship and establishing them as a solid Premier League side.

Wolves fell away to finish 13th last season, but Spurs have reportedly put that down to the departure of Diogo Jota to Liverpool and Raul Jimenez’s head injury.


Hitchen’s desire to hire an English coach has not faded, but the 47-year-old’s experience of the Premier League makes him the next best thing.

Tottenham’s inability to hire a new manager has hamstrung their business in the transfer market, with any new signings needing to be approved by the manager.

Spurs are yet to make a signing and face a growing pressure to sell Harry Kane following a £100million bid from Manchester City.
