USA coach Jurgen Klinsmann is being linked with a return to Tottenham.
The People says Tottenham will try to lure Klinsmann in the summer if their experiment with Tim Sherwood does not work.
That is Plan B for owner Joe Lewis and chairman Daniel Levy, who had wanted the former Spurs striker to take over when Andre Villas-Boas was sacked as manager.
German legend Klinsmann was not available because he is heading for Brazil in June having guided the USA national team to the World Cup finals.
But the 49-year-old will be top of the White Hart Lane club's wish-list should Sherwood fail to live up to expectations by the end of the season.
