Tottenham Hotspur parted ways with José Mourinho and his coaching staff on Monday, a day after the north London club’s involvement in the newly formed Super League was confirmed.
Former midfielder Ryan Mason was put in charge of conducting first team training sessions following the Portuguese tactician’s sacking.
The Premier League side have already started work to find Mourinho’s successor and Maurizio Sarri has been identified as one of the candidates.
That’s according to Calciomercato, who add Spurs have made contact with the Italian’s agent, Fali Ramadani.
Sarri is yet to return to management since Juventus relieved him from duties at the end of last season.
Ramadani has been looking after the 62-year-old’s interests in the past few years and there’s been a ‘new direct contact’ between the representative and the English club.
The agent has ‘welcomed Tottenham’s interest’ and has reiterated Sarri’s willingness to return to the Premier League, having managed Chelsea during the 2018/19 season.
AS Roma are also chasing Sarri and the possibility of joining the Serie A side shouldn’t be ruled out.
If the Giallorossi want to appoint him, they will have to step up their efforts because, as per the report, Tottenham are ‘ready to swoop’ for Sarri.
