According to the Daily Mail, Tottenham have made another approach for Brendan Rodgers, who seems high on Daniel Levy’s list of targets.
Spurs had already made contact with the 48-year-old, but at the time, he was keen to stay with Leicester.
Now, after the Daily Mail said yesterday that another approach had been made in the last 48 hours, it has been revealed that his stance is unchanged.
Rodgers is on the brink of guiding Leicester into the Champions League, and he wants the chance to manage the Foxes against Europe’s best.
The Northern Irishman also has reservations about managing Tottenham, which the Daily Mail say Daniel Levy is aware of.
Rodgers also has plenty of control at the King Power Stadium in terms of transfer dealings and general football operations.
That is something he wouldn’t necessarily have at Spurs, according to the Daily Mail.
You can understand why Levy has been so desperate for Rodgers that he’s now made two approaches.
The ex-Liverpool boss is doing a phenomenal job with Leicester.
After Monday’s 2-1 win over Crystal Palace, he now has 117 wins as a manager in the Premier League, which is very impressive.
Sadly, it seems impossible for Levy to appoint him as José Mourinho’s replacement.
So, back to the drawing board. Who will Tottenham get now?
Well, the Daily Mail state that Levy doesn’t want this to drag on much longer, and is keen to hire someone quickly.
Ajax boss Erik ten Hag has emerged as a candidate. His contract expires at the end of the season, meaning that he is likely to be a cheap appointment.
The Daily Mail say that this suits Tottenham, who are working on a tight budget due to the financial impacts of COVID-19.
If Levy truly does want this situation sorted quickly, then expect to see developments over the next few weeks.
