The former Chelsea manager was linked with the Tottenham job earlier this week should Jose Mourinho face the sack, per Rai Sports (via Sport Witness), though these claims were refuted by Spurs journalist Alasdair Gold.
However, the latest report coming from Gazzetta dello Sport has suggested a meeting between the two camps could take place as early as next week.
Should Spurs hire Maurizio Sarri
“We need to stop going after Chelsea ex-managers”
The 62-year-old was only with Juventus for one season after the Serie A giants sacked the Italian manager following their failure in the Champions League after being knocked out by Ligue 1 side Lyon in the last 16.
Going by the reaction of these Spurs fans, it is apparent that despite the speculation surrounding Mourinho they clearly do not want to see Sarri on the sideline should the Portuguese manager face the sack.
