A former Tottenham boss is being linked with a return to management in the Premier League.

Nuno Espirito Santo proved to be one of the more forgettable Tottenham bosses of recent years, only managing a short stint at the club. Santo had worked wonders at Wolves, taking them back to the Premier League before establishing the Midlands club as a Premier League mainstay.

But he did not have the same impact at Spurs, only lasting just over four months. Fans were not impressed by the style of football implemented, and amid poor results, Santo was sacked in the November of last year, with Antonio Conte coming in to replace him.

Spurs haven’t looked back up to now, securing a top four finish under Conte, and they have also enjoyed a good start to the season. Santo has returned to management since, joining Saudi club Al-Ittihad in the summer, but he is now being linked with a return to the Premier League.

BetVictor have slashed the odds for a Santo return to Wolves, with the former Spurs boss now priced at 5/4 following the sacking of Bruno Lage. Santo is a popular figure at Wolves, given what he achieved, and he is being tipped to return to steady the ship at Molineux.

Elsewhere in the odds, Pedro Martins is the second favourite, followed by Marcelo Gallardo and former Wolves player Rob Edwards, who was recently sacked by Watford. Former Burnley boss Sean Dyche and now former Sevilla boss Julen Lopetegui are also in the odds.

According to the Daily Mail, Santo is keen on a return to Wolves, despite having a job currently. It’s reported Loptegui has already rejected two offers from Wolves after recently departing Sevilla following a disappointing start to the season.

Nuno Espirito Santo 5/4

Pedro Martins 5/2

Marcelo Gallardo 6/1
