A nice easy one to start off with, who is Tottenham's record signing?

He spent a lot of time on Tottenham Hotspur as Spurs find themselves in ninth place, nine points off the top four.

This has led to suggestions that some players are unhappy with Jose Mourinho’s training methods and that he is under pressure.

One man who has been linked with the Spurs job is Julian Nagelsmann, and it appears as if he has been offered to Tottenham.

Castles said: (7:14) “I can tell you that my information is that Julian Nagelsmann, who was a candidate to replace before Mourinho was hired and is admired by Tottenham’s board; I can tell you he has been offered to Tottenham as a replacement for Mourinho.

“I understand for the summer, not mid-season, Nagelsmann would not want to leave Leipzig while he’s still in the Champions and in a position of relative success in the Bundesliga.

“That obviously is going to be a very tempting proposition for Daniel Levy.”

Would you like to see Nagelsmann as Tottenham manager?

Yes, that would be brilliant

No, he isn't that good

TIF Thoughts on Nagelsmann…

The German is widely thought to be one of the best young managers in Europe and has had strong success in the Bundesliga, with both Hoffenheim and RB Leipzig and in four full seasons he has only ever finished outside of the top four once.

In the Champions League last season, he guided Leipzig to the semi-finals, and though he hasn’t won anything yet, he has a strong reputation in the game and could be the ideal appointment for Spurs.

However, Mourinho still has time to turn everything around and has a cup final against Manchester City coming up in April, but it is clear that pressure is growing, and replacements look to be positioning themselves.

If Spurs do get rid of Mourinho, then we think Nagelsmann could be the ideal candidate to replace him.
