Former Chelsea boss Andre Villas-Boas is a contender for the Tottenham job.
The Daily Mail says Villas-Boas and Ralf Rangnick are two of the names on the shortlist to replace Harry Redknapp.
The sacked Chelsea boss and former Schalke chief are among those under consideration as the north London club begins the search for a successor to the sacked 65-year-old.
Chairman Daniel Levy will discuss his options at a hastily-convened meeting with Spurs' top brass with several current Premier League managers also under consideration.
However, there is a reluctance to pay out a hefty compensation figure to any club on top of that which Spurs will have to shell out to their former boss in lieu of his £3m annual salary.
