Daniel Levy’s search for Tottenham’s new manager looks set to heat up before the end of the season following the dismissal of Jose Mourinho earlier this month.
While tensions remain over their failed European Super League plans, attentions have now turned to who might be in the dugout for the start of the 2021/22 campaign.
With their Carabao Cup final defeat providing yet another blow, Levy will need to be extra certain of his next appointment with pressure on his own role building.
Daily Star Sport have now taken a look at the main candidates to take over in north London, three of which are current Premier League bosses.
Erik Ten Hag
Ajax boss Erik Ten Hag has emerged as the new favourite for the Spurs job following the news that Julian Nagelsmann will become the new manager of Bayern Munich.
The Dutch head coach joined the Eredivisie giants back in 2017, and has since won 119 of his 163 fixtures while winning the league title in 2018/19 and two KNVB Cups.
The 51-year-old’s only experience managing outside of his native county is his time with Bayern Munich II between 2013 and 2015, which could hand Levy some doubts.
Former Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri is also in the frame as a potential replacement for Mourinho, having been without a job since leaving Juventus.
Despite winning the title in his only season at the club, he was replaced by Andrea Pirlo and Inter look set to steal their crown this season.
While Sarri led Chelsea to a top four finish and Europa League glory, Blues fans were not excited by his style of play – with Frank Lampard picked as his replacement.
In addition, Lorenzo Insigne could follow the Italian to the club.

Fulham boss Scott Parker has emerged as a surprise candidate to take over at his former club, despite relegation looking certain for his current side.
The former England midfielder took the job following the departure of Claudio Ranieri back in 2019, leading them back into the Premier League at the first time of asking.
Although Fulham have shown glimpses of their ability at times, their inconsistency has proved damaging, but Parker’s reputation continues to grow.
Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers looks set to remain at the club as they near Champions League qualification following their win over Crystal Palace.
While Nuno Espirito Santo and Wolves have not had their finest season in recent memory, the Portuguese boss looks likely to continue building for the foreseeable future.
Massimiliano Allegri has been without a job since leaving Juventus to be replaced by Sarri, although he could fancy a Premier League switch should Levy contact him, he has no experience of English football.
