Reported Tottenham Hotspur manager target Ruben Amorim is reportedly open to joining a Premier League club.
Following recent speculation concerning Antonio Conte’s future at the north London club, which has been amplified after the 53-year-old criticised the players and the ownership in a recent press conference, the Lilywhites have been linked with several managers, including the Sporting CP boss.
With the latest international break now underway, some behind-the-scenes details have emerged regarding the Portuguese figure and the current managerial situation at Tottenham.
According to a recent report from Football Insider, Amorim, who was interviewed by Chelsea before they appointed Graham Potter, is on Spurs’ radar as a potential replacement for Conte.
The report also adds that while the Italian is expected to leave Spurs this summer, the club’s hierarchy are considering getting rid of him during the international break, with Amorim open to making a move to the Premier League.
Since taking charge of the Portuguese club back in March 2020, the manager has overlooked 148 games in total across all competitions, winning 102, drawing 20 and losing 26 along the way.
Would you be happy to see Antonio Conte leave Spurs this summer?
This season has seen Sporting win 16 of their 24 league games, leaving them in fourth place with 50 points on the board, making more progressive carries (615) than any other team in the division.
The 38-year-old recently got a taste of what it’s like to come up against English opposition as his Sporting side recently knocked Arsenal out of the Europa League after beating them on penalties.
Hailed for his “sensational” work with the club by journalist Marcus Alves, it’s easy to see why the Lilywhites apparently have their eyes on the Portuguese head coach as a potential replacement for Conte.
Moving forward, if the north London club do find themselves looking for a new manager in the near future, we feel that, despite his lack of experience managing in England, Amorim could be an ideal candidate to come in and take the team forward.
