RB Leipzig chief Markus Krösche has dismissed reports linking manager Julian Nagelsmann to Tottenham.

Nagelsmann has been heavily linked with a move to Spurs in the summer, with several reports naming him as a potential candidate if Jose Mourinho leaves the club.

The Portuguese boss has found himself under increasing pressure over the past few months amid a dire run of form for his side.

Having started the season strongly and topped the table at one point, Tottenham have slowly slid downwards and currently find themselves ninth, 23 points behind leaders Manchester City.

They are also, crucially, nine points outside of the Champions League places, a position that was considered the minimum aim for the club this season.

That has seen Mourinho taking the flack, with many believing most of Tottenham’s problems lie at his door.

Thus, he has been linked with an exit, and several big names around Europe touted as replacements, with Nagelsmann among them following his fine work with Leipzig. Krösche, though, isn’t interested in such suggestions.

“When you do a good job, you arouse desire,” RB Live report him saying to Sport BILD.

“But Julian feels comfortable because he has everything he needs here. The team is developing great.

“That’s why I see no reason for him to switch – especially since he has a valid contract with us.”
