However, Spurs have been handed a major blow in their reported pursuit of the young German coach after well-respected journalist Constantin Eckner claimed Nagelsmann is the frontrunner for the Bayern Munich job, with the Bavarian giants ready to pay at least €20m (£17.4m) for his services.
Current Bayern boss Hansi Flick is rumoured to become the new German national team coach in the summer, leaving the door open for his compatriot to take over at the Allianz Arena, and the news has not gone down well with disappointed Tottenham fans.
“Lol. Levy wouldn’t even pay €20m for a striker so that’s another one finished. God I hate this club sometimes”
“We’re not getting him. We probably won’t get a top young coach until Levy completely steps away from transfers.”
“We are dusted”
“The day gets worse”
“Levy really needs to get out of the Club if we’re to have any hope of winning trophies. You can’t win trophies with the squad not being constantly improved. He won’t fund it”
“Having to pay money…. that’s spurs out so”
Tottenham are currently sitting in seventh place in the Premier League table, and with just five games of the campaign left to play, are set to miss out on Champions League football for a second consecutive year.
