Tottenham boss Andre Villas-Boas is eager to see a director of football employed above him.
AS Roma GM Franco Baldini is favourite for the post.
"We have been outlining the route ahead for what we want to do in terms of the club structure," said AVB.
"Hopefully (there will be) the arrival of somebody else in the structure for the recruitment side, a technical director.
"It is a position I am used to working with and ideally it is someone that will help us to move forward."
