Fabrizio Romano shares the latest on Tottenham’s ‘number one target’

By Mehdi Gokal -

Former Liverpool and Real Madrid midfielder Xabi Alonso has recently been linked with the Tottenham job.

It was reported yesterday that the Spaniard is now Tottenham’s number one target as they continued their search for Antonio Conte’s replacement.

He has also been linked with a return to Real Madrid who reportedly will also be in hunt for a new manager next season with Carlo Ancelotti’s future at the club uncertain.

However, Alonso has made it clear that he is focused on his current role and is committed to achieving more with his current team. When asked about the rumours, he said, as shared by Fabrizio Romano:

“I’ve been in football for many years, rumours are normal but we still have a lot to achieve”.

That’s why my head is 100 percent here for the last few months. And my head is also 100 percent here for next season”.

With Alonso pretty much ruling him out of the job for now, the search for a new Spurs manager remains wide open with the club linked with a number of candidates.

While Julian Nagelsmann was the supposed favourite for the job, recent reports stated that talks with him have hit a stumbling block. 

Arne Slot meanwhile according to ESPN has emerged as a serious contender for the job. Slot has been making waves in the Dutch league this season, with Feyenoord currently sitting eight points clear at the top of the table. His impressive management skills have garnered significant attention and could make him an attractive prospect for Spurs.

Daniel Levy will be under a lot of pressure to get the appointment right as he cannot afford to get another managerial appointment wrong at the club, specially considering he has already made the decision to not go after Mauricio Pochettino who is not close to becoming the manager of their London rivals Chelsea.
