One report has named five possible candidates for the Tottenham job if Mauricio Pochettino leaves the club.
The Argentinian has endured his toughest spell as Spurs manager, with the club languishing in the bottom half of the Premier League, and rumours of discord among members of the squad.
Tottenham have only managed 14 points from their opening 12 matches in the Premier League this season and currently sit in 14th place.
They were held at home to a confident Sheffield United side on Saturday and were perhaps lucky to take anything out of the game.
And the Daily Telegraph claimed on Wednesday that Pochettino is ‘heading towards the point of no return’ and that defeat in a ‘make or break’ match against West Ham on November 23 could ‘prove decisive’.
It’s the Telegraph again in the same report that have named five candidates that would possibly be in the frame for the job.
Current free agents Max Allegri or Jose Mourinho are picked out as possible appointments who would be able to come in midseason unlike other candidates who are tied into a contract.
And the Telegraph adds that: ‘Waiting to the end of the season would widen [Daniel] Levy’s options and give him a more realistic chance of appointing Bournemouth’s Eddie Howe, RB Leipzig’s Julian Nagelsmann, or even England manager Gareth Southgate.’
