Tottenham Hotspur Football Club is set to be notified about the availability of Arne Slot, a Dutch football manager, for the vacant managerial position at the club after his representatives meet with Feyenoord on Wednesday. Slot’s Feyenoord had won the Eredivisie championship earlier this month, and he has emerged as the leading candidate for the Tottenham job after the sacking of Antonio Conte in March. Although there have been rumours that Slot has already agreed to join Spurs, this does not appear to be the case. Reports suggest that the Dutchman is open to the move, making him a strong contender for the job, and his representatives are set to meet with Feyenoord to discuss the conditions of his possible exit. Compensation is a crucial point of the negotiations, but Tottenham will be informed if Slot is the frontrunner for the job, although other candidates remain on the list.
Tottenham Chairman Daniel Levy had made ex-Bayern Munich boss Julian Nagelsmann his top target, but Nagelsmann decided not to move to north London. Subsequently, Slot became the frontrunner for the job. There are other candidates in contention for the position, including Celtic manager Ange Postecoglou, Sporting’s Ruben Amorim, and former Spain boss Luis Enrique. Enrique being the only one without a current job, his wage demands may be significantly higher than Postecoglou and Amorim’s.
Tottenham appointed Ryan Mason as interim manager for the remainder of the 2022/23 season after Cristian Stellini only lasted four games appointed in the wake of Conte’s departure. Spurs fans are eagerly waiting for the appointment of a permanent manager, and it remains to be seen who will fill the position.
The new manager’s task is to revitalise the squad that is presently lingering in seventh place in the Premier League after a mixed performance this season and missing out on any kind of European football next season. Furthermore, rumours persist about the future of star striker Harry Kane, who has been linked with a move away from the club this summer. Whoever takes over will have a huge task ahead to satisfy the demanding supporters of the club and make Spurs a serious contender in English football once again.
