Jurgen Klinsmann says he's prepared to open talks with Tottenham.
Germany's 2006 World Cup coach is seeking the right opening to begin his career in club management and believes his former club could provide it.
The Observer says Klinsmann is concerned about majority shareholder Enic's plans to sell the club and last week attempted to contact the investment group's principal investor, Joe Lewis, to ascertain his exact intentions.
The German would manage Tottenham if Lewis gives him an undertaking that he will not permit a takeover inside the next three years. Alternatively, if Enic were prepared to hand over ownership of the company in the near future Klinsmann is ready to enter into discussions with the new owners to see if he could work with him.
