RB Leipzig boss Julian Nagelsmann would be interested in a move to Tottenham should it become available.
That’s according to SportBILD journalist Christian Falk, who says the German boss would consider a move to London the right step for his career.
Nagelsmann has been heavily linked with the Tottenham post in recent weeks, with current boss Jose Mourinho under fire amid a desperate run of form.
While his side progressed comfortably in the Europa League this week, they have struggled in the Premier League, with seven losses in their last 13 games, leaving them ninth in the table and nine points outside of the top four.
That’s put the pressure on Mourinho once again, with questions about his style of football, management and attitude all rearing their heads once more.
Nagelsmann is reportedly on the list of managers that Tottenham would look at if they seek a replacement for the Portuguese boss, and Falk says that’s a move he’s open to.
“Now that gets a True, whether he actually ends up at Tottenham, is of course very dependent on Mourinho and his performance,” he told BILD.
“In principle, Nagelsmann has a very clear career plan in different stages at Leipzig.
“Let’s say he’s now at stage 3, the career plan will end at the club like Real Madrid, which is clearly stage 1, but in between, he would apparently like to make another intermediate step.
“Tottenham is clearly on the list of the clubs he would be able to imagine now as the next step when he completes his mission at Leipzig.”
