Tottenham have made initial contact with Julian Nagelsmann as they look to swiftly secure his service in the summer.

Tottenham face a fight to secure the service of highly-rated German coach Julian Nagelsmann with Spanish giants Real Madrid also rumoured to be interested in hiring him when Carlo Ancelotti leaves the club.

According to TalkSport Spurs chairman Daniel Levy sees the German manager who was sacked by Bayern Munich last week as the ideal man to replace Antonio Conte who left Tottenham by mutual agreement over the weekend.

LondonWorld sources confirm Spurs have made their intentions known to the young German manager and reminded him how high he was on their radar before the appointment of Jose Mourinho, Nuno Espirito Santo and Antonio Conte.

However, Tottenham is not the only club interested in the former RB Leipzig and Bayern manager with Spanish giants Real Madrid also likely to have a void to fill in the summer with doubts over the long-term future of Carlo Ancelotti.

Tottenham chairman has named Cristian Stellini, Antonio Conte’s trusted assistant as the boss for the remaining 10 games of the season, he’ll be assisted by Ryan Mason, the former Tottenham player who has made a smooth transition into coaching.

Meanwhile former Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino remains keen on returning to the team he led to the final of the Champions League in 2019- but it’s understood that the Spurs board are divided on the idea of his return to north London.

Tottenham fans are said to be favouring a move for Mauricio Pochettino but would be equally delighted if the board could convince Julian Nagelsmann who was brutally sacked by Bayern despite convincingly leading them to the last eight of the Champions League and just one point behind Dortmund who are top of the Bundesliga table.
